What To Do When Visiting North Captiva Island
Life’s a Beach on North Captiva Island
If you don’t want to do anything else but dip your toes in white sand while visiting North Captiva Island here in Florida, you still will not run out of options. With over 5 miles of beautiful and pristine beachfront to explore, you can shed the grind of daily city life and completely immerse yourself in nature. You may not even see another soul on your sandy stroll as two-thirds of the island’s border is a 700-acre state land preserve.
Bring an extra bag for shell collecting! The shoreline is stocked full of vibrant and rare shells just begging to be scooped up to serve as a token reminder of your stay here. The front office can even provide you with the “Shell Seeker’s Guide” if you really want to dive into some proper shelling.
Guest services can also provide you with guidance to one of the many points of access for the beach. Please don’t hesitate to ask! Personnel can let you know where the closest access is to your location and help you avoid private property along the beachfront.
It’s All Fun & Games When Living that Club Life
Whether you are looking to relax, or kick it up a notch with some amazing solo or group activities, the island has you covered. If you are a member or guest of The Island Club get ready– it is time for some fun in the sun perfect for all age groups– including the young and young at heart. Here are some top recommendations to book on your trip:
- Pools & Tennis
The Island Club allows access to Olympic swimming pools for all Club guests and members. These heated beauties are large enough to get some laps in for exercise and refreshing enough for just a quick dip. There is no shortage of space as the 10,000 square foot pool area has over 80 chaise lounges. You won’t need to seek out food or beverage while relaxing poolside either as the pool bar Mangos is happy to serve you beverages and bites during your visit.
Tennis anyone? If you’re looking to work up a sweat before cooling off in the pool area be sure to check out one of the two neighboring har-tru surface tennis courts. No need to pack your tennis supplies as racquets can be checked out at the front desk and balls are for sale at the store!
- Kayaks & Bikes
No bike? No Kayak? No problem. Club guests are welcome to check out any of the complimentary bikes or kayaks. You can check either out for the whole day! If you have someone in your group uninterested in those activities, they are welcome to check out one of the complimentary beach chairs so they can relax while you ride.
- Jet Ski Rentals
Nothing says vacation like soaring through waves atop a jet ski. Boats-n-Fun works with guests to offer exclusive deals on jet ski rentals. This is a sure fire way to make some memories.
- Boat Rentals & Fishing
Boats-n-Fun also offers boat rentals. So pack your nautical themed pashmina afghan, it’s time to grab the friends and family, and luxuriate on any variety of boat you choose. There is also great fishing while you are on the open sea so be sure to check out some fishing poles.
If you have tried one or all of the above activities it may be time to unwind with a replenishing yoga class or relaxing massage. The Island Club personnel can help direct you to convenient offerings best suited to your needs.
