Formerly known simply as Captiva Beach, it regularly gets listed as one of the nation’s top romantic beach, primarily based on it’s A-1 sunset views. The access is right next to South Seas Island Resort, which takes up one-third of the island, so you will be sharing the beach with its guests.
The other downside is the small parking lot – arrive early. The Mucky Duck restaurant is a short walk away on the beach, if you’re looking for a cold one or lunch. Portable bathrooms are the only facilities at the beach access.
