Biking on Sanibel Island

Sanibel’s 26+ miles of bike trails are located next to most Sanibel roads and provide access to beaches where cars can’t park, past beautiful Gulf-front mansions and through the woods to Sanibel’s pioneer cemetery, which is not accessible by car. You’ll see lots of people of all ages biking on Sanibel. The wide, smooth and well-marked trails are separated from the roadways, making them safe for families with children. Several water fountains can be found along the trails and bike racks are everywhere.
