Pointe Santo de Sanibel

Luxury in Paradise!

 

An Exciting and Fun Luxury Vacation at Point Santo!

Pointe Santo de Sanibel is located on prestigious West Gulf Drive near Tarpon Bay Road - right on the beach and only minutes from shopping, restaurants, the Island Cinema, art galleries and Bailey's General Store, a true island institution for nearly 100 years.
The resort is just across the street from the bicycle path. Finnimore's Bike Shop, which isn't far from Pointe Santo, rents bicycles and offers free delivery service.

A bike tour of the island is truly rewarding - you'll see the old island cemetary, gopher tortoises, the historic post office site at the Sanctuary and many other things you'd never see by car! Get a copy of Marianne Strickland's book, Pedaling Paradise which covers the entire bike path system including the location of all drinking fountains.
