Do you dream of vacation days filled with play, activity, adventure and fun? Or do you prefer simple days — beachfront, poolside and altogether horizontal — devoted to the fine art of daydreaming? Either way, every day can be this good at the legendary ‘Tween Waters Inn Island Resort & Spa of Captiva Island.

No other beach resort on Sanibel Island or Captiva Island offers all that ‘Tween Waters Inn does — in such a perfect, Gulf-‘Tween-Bay location. From pristine, private sugar sand beaches to the west, to the natural beauty of Pine Island Sound to the east, you’re smack in the middle of the best swimming, sand castle building, fishing, kayaking, paddleboarding, canoeing, biking and much more (or much less, depending on your energy level) — at Captiva Island’s best beach resort.

Marina & Water Sports

Whether departing ‘Tween Waters Marina or our private Gulf of Mexico beach, you can have a go at all sorts of water sports — parasail, jet ski, kayak, paddleboard, chartered fishing or exploring, private boat rentals, sailing and much more.

To learn more, just visit our Marina or Water Sports.

Play Pool, Serenity Pool and Whirlpools

It’s water here, water there, beautiful water everywhere at ‘Tween Waters. If you like your water served with food, beverages, music and fun, our Play Pool and Oasis Pool Bar await. For a quieter, slower paced and altogether relaxing day, check into our Serenity Pool with private cabanas for pleasure rental. And if you like it hot, just step into one of our two whirlpools.

Tennis, Pickle Ball and Beach Volleyball

If you enjoy net sports, you’ll love your options at ‘Tween Waters Island Resort & Spa. Tennis enthusiasts can volley the day away at our two lighted tennis courts. You can join in the latest rage and grab the gang for Pickle Ball. Or, if you’d rather stay and play on the beach, ‘Tween Waters offers a beachfront volleyball court. Best of all, it’s all free.

Biking and Nearby Discounted Golf

There are more than 25 miles of paved bike trails for you to explore on Sanibel Island — with beachfront biking also waiting to be enjoyed on Captiva Island. Just pick up your rental bike from our Marina and off you go! If you prefer driving (the fairway), then make your way to Sanibel Island Golf Club where TWI guests receive a special, exclusive 10% discount when you call ahead.

Guests Only Fitness Center

Vacations are a great way to get rid of stress. So is working out — and at ‘Tween Waters Island Resort & Spa, we’ll put you to good work! Located in our Day Spa, you’ll find fitness options including resistance weights, free weights, treadmills, stationary bikes and much more. Bonus: your view overlooks our tennis courts and Serenity Pool. Bonus again: it’s yours free.

Epic Shelling

While it’s not a sport, no vacation to ‘Tween Waters and Captiva Island is complete without a walk on our beach and a chance for you to partake of the “Captiva Crouch.” Be sure to pack your sunblock and grab your collection bag, because odds are you’ll hit the shell lover’s jackpot. Just take note: be sure those shells are empty, because taking live shells is against the law.
