Sanibel Island vs. Fort Myers Beaches

Jump to last reply

Based on all the responses I got to my last post (THANK YOU!) I think we narrowed the selection for our trip at the beginning of May down to Sanibel Island or Fort Myers Beach. I was sold on Sanibel until I started reading other posts/reviews. My question is: Are all of the beaches on Sanibel "shelling" beaches or do some of them have the nice soft sand? I think we would have fun shelling, so am ok with that, but would like to be able to walk barefoot & lay out on some beaches & just wondered if the Fort Myers Beach area had more of the "soft" sand beaches.

I'm sorry if this is a silly question....we've just never been to the area & it was something I though we should consider.
