If you’re in good health and good spirits but feel compelled to act a certain way because of your age, we advise you to throw caution to the wind and live a little. There’s not a better spot to rebel, try new things and act the way you feel than on Sanibel Island. We’ve got 5 anti-aging activities on Sanibel Island to help you stay young.
Rent a Boat or a Paddleboard
Sanibel Island offers boat rentals and tours, a huge ecosystem with tons of wildlife to see and amazing sunsets. Make a point to get a rental boat, rev the motor and cruise The Intracoastal Waterway in search of dolphin. Look for the perfect spot to anchor and watch the sunset on the water while you sip some wine, that is of course if you’re old enough for wine. If you’re feeling more rebellious or want to burn off some energy and get a workout, other options include kayaking, wind surfing and paddleboarding. C’mon, you only live once.
Reignite a fond childhood memory by finding some of the most amazing shells around. You can spend a day collecting shells on Sanibel Island, which has a shoreline littered with more than 250 different species of shells. So bring a few buckets and try to head out at low tide or after a storm, which is the best time to find shells making their way to the coastline.
Enjoy Fresh Seafood
Sanibel Island is a foodie’s paradise for fresh seafood. Wine and dine yourselves in waterfront restaurants like The Lighthouse Waterfront Restaurant and other dining establishments. Sanibel restaurants are also known for their cocktails and local craft beers on tap so enjoy your adventurous spirit by treating yourself to a cocktail or two.
Schedule a Charter
If you’re really going to take advantage of Sanibel Island anti-aging activities, you need to spend a day with someone who knows the island and can find you the best places to eat, fish and spot wildlife. Booking a charter ensures the best way to find the finest saltwater fishing spots. Charters also stop at the best shelling locations and can drop you off at Cabbage Key for lunch. An eco-tour also ensures your captain takes you to the best spots to get face to face with dolphins, manatees and seabirds.
