Winter and early spring can be busy on Sanibel Island, but the area starts to quiet down a bit in later spring. By the end of March and the beginning of April, you'll enjoy perfect shelling beaches, weather in the low to mid-80s, and plenty of events going on and things to do. The warm temperatures make it a perfect time to explore the island's nature, as well. It's truly one of the best times of the year to visit. When you book direct with VIP Vacation Rentals, you can take advantage of our special offers and stay in one of our featured Sanibel vacation rentals.

Things to do on Sanibel Island in Spring
The spring is a great time to enjoy events like a local. Several events take place during the late winter and spring months, ending before it gets too hot in the summer. The Sanibel Island Farmers Market runs from October - May on Sundays at Sanibel City Hall. It's a great place to stop and grab fresh ingredients for a meal in your vacation rental's kitchen. You'll find local produce, fresh fish and meats, baked goods, and more.
Another popular event among locals is the Island Jazz Concert series, which takes place on select Sundays at 3 p.m. from late January through April. Bring along a blanket or some beach chairs to the BIG ARTS Boler Garden for this event.
Between January and April, the J.N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge offers free events and programs to guests all throughout the week. This park is a true gem on Sanibel Island and offers wonderful opportunities to see southwest Florida's flora and fauna. Choose from free activities like birding tours, bike tours, beach walks, trail excursions, and wildlife outings to see alligators, manatees, and more.
