Sundial Beach Resort & Spa is a centerpiece of this unique barrier island off the southwest coast of Florida. Sanibel is two-thirds nature preserve, providing visitors with an experience of Florida the way it used to be. This resort on Sanibel Island encompasses natural beauty, diverse activities and delightful accommodations.  

Sundial offers new restaurants, updated amenities and 270 One and Two Bedroom Suites. But Sundial suites are, in essence, home-like condominiums with full kitchens, sprawling living areas, wonderfully large bedrooms and comfortable, roomy baths. Many of the larger accommodations have washers and dryers, and not one but two cable TVs.  

There is virtually no end to the activities at Sundial Beach Resort & Spa. Sanibel Island is a natural playground. Feel the white sand beach between your toes, take a refreshing swim in our blue-green waters, and bike the miles of paved paths around the island.
