Captiva Island is a beautiful Lee County located besides its sister island Sanibel in Florida. It is popular for its quiet ambiance, beautiful clear water and white sandy beaches. Sun bathing and water sports probably comes to mind, while picturing a beach day.
People wonder what they will do if the beach gets soaked with rain. You don’t need to feel depressed, if the weather is a bit wet on both these friendly islands. The beach is quiet because of less people and there are rain storms that can churn the ocean and sprinkle beaches with more seashells than usual. Make sure to find Captiva Island rentals at a beach resort, so that you can enjoy rainy day pleasantly indoors with the best ocean views from the patio.
