This facility, approximately 10 acres, is located on SR/CR 867, consists of the road sides of two spoil islands built and used to link the mainland to Sanibel Island. The causeway bisects San Carlos Bay a short distance from the mouth of the Caloosahatchee River, that allows bay and gulf side access.

As you are traveling from the mainland towards Sanibel Island you will pass through a D.O.T. Toll booth (toll is $6.00 , no fee required for park use) then crossover a "sky" bridge and arrive at the first island, referred to as "Island A". If you continue on, you will crossover another "flat" bridge and arrive at the second island referred to as "Island B".

Both islands have been a very popular destination since built and can accessed from the water as well. Some of the activities enjoyed are fishing, wading/swimming (beware of submerged structures), picnicking, canoeing/kayaking, (no launching or retrieval of vessels, this would include both aerial and water type crafts), wind surfing, kite boarding, shelling, sun bathing or just plain relaxing in the shade.

Island "A" has parking only. Island "B" offers restrooms, drinking fountains (located on each side of the road) and a few picnic tables on the gulf side. Grilling is permitted, so feel free to bring your own. No ground fires permitted. No alcoholic beverages allowed. "Leashed" pets welcomed but, please remember to clean up after your pet.

  • It can get a little crowded here, especially on the weekends, but its hard to beat the sunset views form the park. A trip here became an almost daily event during the week I was there.
