Conseils des habitants
Designated a national wildlife refuge by the US Fish & Wildlife Service, Ding Darling is home to a myriad of birds, mammals, reptiles, and habitats. Pre-book a tram tour or ride a bike, hike, or kayak through the park. Closed on Fridays.
AMAZING place and a must see! Check out their website to see everything they have to offer. My favorite place on Sanibel!
It is a $6 fee to go across the bridge but it is worth it. The drive through the refuge has several pull off spots to enjoy.
Wildlife preserve with miles of nature trails. Visitors center is excellent. Guests can walk, bike, kayak or drive through the park.

“For everyone who has ever picked up a sea shell and wondered, "where did this come from?". Or, "what kind of creature made this?". Located on Sanibel Island, (not Pine Island): check drive times, depending on how busy tourist season is. Note: the Shell Museum is not far from Sanibel's Bowman's Beach. Arrive early AM for a parking spot. ”

“One mile away on Tarpon Bay Rd. Excellent fresh, local seafood and drinks. Best selling author Randy Wayne White’s books are for sale here. He was a local fishing charter captain, turned restaurant owner and author of mysteries with local settings. Great beach reading.”
