The Botanical Gardens at Sanibel Moorings

Tucked in the secluded southeast corner of tranquil Sanibel Island, amongst the palms and beside the gulf there lies a six-acre secret garden woven around a beautiful beach-side resort. Home to over 100 types of exotic and unusual flora and fauna. Public and private tours available.
