Awesome beach! Good waves! Good food all around! Only draw back was parking, only one public, very small. Found a business and floated the guy sitting in back 20 bucks to park there! Was worth it for a fantastic beach!

Captiva Beach is beautiful. Everything about Captiva is beautiful - just driving through the Island and gawking at the multi-million dollar homes is fun!

Lovely looking beach , we went early paid to park, stayed about 45 minutes. Could not stand the bugs. I'm sure at a different time of year it will be nice .

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
We'll be staying at a home on Captiva Drive near Gore Lane next week. I'm wondering where the closest beach access is. From the map it looks like it should be easy enough to walk to the beach, but just wondering if we can head straight over, or if we need to make our way to specific pubic access points. Thanks!!

Everything seems to be within walking or biking distance. We used the public access three different times and waited an average of ten minutes for a handicap parking place.
we are out of towners, what time does the beach open?
