Home to protected wildlife reserves, world-renowned fishing and average temperatures of around 24°C, the shell-covered beaches of Sanibel, Florida appear to tourists as uncharted territory. Visit this virtually unspoiled island oasis with a room at the historic beachfront Island Inn for £116 ($176) per room, per night, with continental breakfast included.
Valid on Sunday-Thursday stays from June to August. Weekends cost £8 (US$10) more per night. This deal cuts 30% off peak spring dates. It's an extra £13 ($20) per room, per night from 1-5 July.
The Island Inn was founded in 1895 as a family-run boarding house and today stands as the longest-operated hotel in the area. There is no resort fee, so use of beach chairs and towels is complimentary. A restaurant offering seafood and nightly specials overlooks the pool deck and the dunes leading down to the beach.
