Christmas on Sanibel

Merry Christmas

There’s not a more magical place at Christmastime!

The shimmering waters of the Gulf of Mexico … an enchanting shell-strewn beach that stretches on forever … twinkling lights that welcome you all around the island … dazzling sunsets that take your breath away … lighted boat parades, caroling on the beach, church services under the stars … and the chance to experience it all with family and friends you cherish most. This is Christmastime on Sanibel & Captiva Islands.

For those of you joining us this year, please find a schedule of church services below, along with a list of restaurants that look forward to welcoming you on Christmas Day!
