While situated alongside the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico and one mile of shell-strewn, white-sand beach, the resort is minutes from The Dunes Golf & Tennis Club, Sundial's official course and the only PGA course on Sanibel; the acclaimed J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge, charming Florida-style boutiques, art galleries, theatres, and more.
