We have so many beautiful beaches in Southwest Florida and one in particular has made a list of the best family beach vacation destinations.

Living in Southwest Florida, we’re so lucky to have so many options when it comes to beaches- Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel, Captiva, Bonita Beach, Naples, Marco Island. Lucky for us that live here, the hardest decision is which one to spend our days at.

I’ve been going to Sanibel every Sunday for my beach days. It’s sad to see all the destruction on the island as a whole, but the beaches are so beautiful and the water is so blue and clear (and getting warmer!) A lot of businesses are reopening as well, so you have options for dining, lodging and things to do.

I’m not the only one who loves the island. Southern Living has put together their list of the best family beach vacation destinations and Sanibel made the list. The magazine said of the island “For a lowkey Florida beach vacation, Sanibel Island could be the ticket. Known as the Shelling Capital of the World, take an early morning walk with your little collector and see how many of the ocean’s treasures you can uncover along the gently lapping waves.”

You can see the full list here, but below are the top 10.
