Tween Waters Island Resort and Spa on Captiva Island is Amazing!

One of my favorite places to visit during the winter months is Captiva Island, Florida.  Living in Atlanta, it doesn't get extremely cold nor do we experience hardly any snow, but who needs a reason to get away and go to the beach?

When my husband and I visit Captiva Island, we always stay at the ‘Tween Waters Inn Island Resort.  It is located across 13 gorgeous beaches-to-back bay acres. ‘Tween Waters Inn Island Resort is the perfect destination for families, couples, meetings, and weddings -with 137 quality accommodations including 19 uniquely themed cottages, one, two, and three-bedroom suites, and comfortable contemporary guest rooms and efficiencies.

‘Tween Waters Inn Island Resort was established in 1931 and just recently was designated a national historic landmark in Florida.  The Old Captiva House, the Inn's fine dining restaurant, still reflects much of its original charm of when it was first built — from picturesque walls of white French doors to hardwood floors, to the Gulf of Mexico sunset that streams through the western windows.

The bay is just a few steps behind the Inn with access to water sports and deep-sea fishing tours.  When we visited this past December, we hired a deep-sea fishing tour and caught the strangest catch.  My husband caught a blowfish and I caught a lizardfish (something I had never heard of or seen before).  In the end, we ended up catching a few grey snapper fish which the chef at the Crowe’s Nest Bar & Grill prepared for our dinner.   The Crowe’s Nest Beach Bar & Grill (the inn’s casual dining restaurant and bar) is a local island hangout spot with nightly entertainment.

I love to look for shells on the beach wherever we travel.  My collection includes shells from all over the world.  I can honestly say, that Captiva Island and Sanibel Island (a quick bike ride away from Captiva) are a shell lover’s paradise.  The “Sanibel Stoop” nickname was coined by the locals on Sanibel Island after watching tourists with their backs hunched over scouring the beachfront in search of shells.  If you are a shell collector, a trip to Sanibel and Captiva islands is a must-do!
