Sanibel Lighthouse

Perhaps the most photographed structure on Sanibel, the Sanibel Lighthouse was first lit in August 1884.  In 1972, the U.S. Coast Guard announced it would extinguish the light, but then abandoned the plan when faced with public outcry.  The Florida Coast Guard continues to maintain the lighthouse, which is not open to visitors, but the City of Sanibel now manages the surrounding property, including the keeper’s quarters, fishing pier and beach access.
