South Seas Island Resort is approximately an hour’s drive from Fort Myers and the Southwest Florida International Airport. We recommend renting a car to save on the $100 cab fare from the airport to the resort.

Sprawling across the northern region of Captiva Island, South Seas Island resort “feels as lush as its name suggests” (Fodor’s). Two and a half miles of pristine white-sand beaches hug this 330-acre nature preserve, offering a quiet and secluded oasis just an hour’s drive from Fort Myers.

Trolley shuttles ensure guests can easily traverse the whopping acreage, zipping through the property’s evergreen mangrove forests to the numerous on-site dining outlets and amenities. Accommodations vary across the grounds, from marina-side hotel rooms to quaint cottages, villas (condominiums), and spacious private homes.

Before taking part in the resort’s copious on-site activities and amenities, head to the seashore to hunt for unique souvenirs on the property’s superb shell-hunting sands. Resident manatees and dolphins are often spotted splashing away in the nearby waters, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled not only for shells.

Tee up at “one of the most picturesque 9-holers anywhere” (Frommer’s), book a treatment at the 4,000-square-foot state-of-the-art spa or take the kids to the family interactive center to enjoy an abundance of kid-friendly activities. Water sports, tennis courts, bikes and a massive pool complex are also available for guests wishing to stay active throughout their stay.

    From the press:
    • “Water on three sides give the resort a delicious seclusion” – Fodor’s
    • “Its Gulfside golf course is one of the most picturesque 9-holers anywhere” – Frommer’s

    Alot of teenagers driving golf carts that we're under 16. Late at night, we heard screeching tires, I look out window and a couple of kids on golf carts almost hit each other. They should not be allowed without parents.

    The harbor rooms at much nicer than bayside. We were moved there when we said we weren’t happy with the cleanliness of the bayside. The staff was helpful and we had a great time!
