LOOK MOM!!!- NO BRIDGES! 4 miles of nature and pristine beaches are what Upper Captiva is famous for. It is so refreshing to come to a beautiful island with no traffic... no congestion... no billboards. Golf carts are the mode of transportation here. If you come to vacation here there are over 200 rental homes to choose from. Some are beachfront cottages and some are luxury homes. Some are simple cottages tucked away in the interior of the island.
There are four restaurants and two resort type clubs that provide pools, tennis, dockage, bicycles and kayaks. Go shelling, fishing or just relax and read a book. Half of Upper Captiva is part of the Cayo Costa State Park system where you can hike or bike miles of trails.
If you are a pilot, homes are available with memberships to the Salty Approach Airstrip. This is a private grass landing stip about 2,000 feet long.
There are private captains for hire to bring you to and from the island. Or one can arrive by one of Island Girl Charter boats that leave Pine Island every two hours every day until 5:00 p.m. The cost is $45. per person.
Should you fall in love with the island and would like to own a home away from home, please stop by Islander Realty. We can help you with all your real estate needs or find that perfect vacation get-away.
Coming to Upper Captiva Island is an adventure.
