Three boating communities in Sanibel stand out for their classic yet casual lifestyle that is reminiscent of the glory of Old Florida: Sanibel Isles, Shell Harbor and Sanibel Estates. These communities are treasured by their residents for their relaxed atmosphere for entertaining on their home’s outdoor patio deck and enjoying fabulous water views when residents are not on their boats.
