Sanibel canal homes real estate - Sanibel canal homes for sale - Gulf access
Sanibel Island Canal homes have access to the Gulf of Mexico. Canal front homes on the east end are located very close to San Carlos Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. A large area here is called Shell Harbour where streets are named after shells. These homes also enjoy deeded beach access with a big parking lot right at the gulf, at the end of Lindgren next to the Sanibel Inn.
Another area near the bay is located a little west on Periwinkle Way and then down to the bay on either Bailey Rd or Dixie Beach Rd. All homes there have direct access and are located on deep water canals, ideal for sailboats.
Another area is located on Sanibel's west end, just before crossing over to Captiva. Here we have a few canals which lead into Dinken Bay and from there to the gulf. A short cut would lead to the gulf via one overpass.
