In the months leading up to your wedding, there’s no shortage of celebrations. From the engagement party to the wedding show and the bachelor/bachelorette parties, the possibilities are endless. The festivities don’t end after the “I dos” have been said. Your honeymoon is a great time to unwind after planning your dream day. If you’re looking for a honeymoon destination that’s filled with sunshine, tranquil waters, and adventures, then Sanibel Island and a vacation home from Sanibel Vacations might just be what you’re looking for.
3 Things to Consider When Planning Your Romantic Getaway
Taking the time to plan out your trip can reduce stress and increase fun once you arrive. We’ve put together three planning tips that’ll help you have the best honeymoon possible.
1. Research Area Activities
While Sanibel Island is known for a more laidback atmosphere, there is still plenty to do and see during your escape. With so many things to do when vacationing in Sanibel Island, looking into different activities and attractions ahead of time can help you know what you don’t want to miss. Popular adventures include:
- Exploring the farmers market
- Visiting J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, a 6,400-acre refuge known for its migratory bird populations
- Fishing with local charters like Captain Shawn Kelly Fishing Charters or Sanibel Fishing Charter
- Witnessing a romantic sunset
- Biking along area trails, including Periwinkle Way or the paths on the eastern side of the island to see the Sanibel Lighthouse
2. Try Something New
During your stay, don’t be afraid to try something new. Maybe you’ve always wanted to go paragliding or stand-up paddleboarding. Your honeymoon is the perfect time to give these a try. Also, ask the locals for recommendations on things to try. This can help you experience a side of the island you may otherwise not have known about.
3. Rent a Luxurious Sanibel Island Vacation Rental
When not out exploring the island, you want a space you can escape to. A vacation home is a great way to have all the comforts of home while enjoying more privacy and space than you’d get at a hotel. At Sanibel Vacations, we have both condo and home rentals, which means you can pick the rental that’s just right for you. Curl up for a movie night in or enjoy a romantic candlelight dinner you created together.
