Captiva Island

Get captivated

Captiva caught the eye of North America's foremost beach authority, Dr. Stephen Leatherman (aka Dr. Beach) - not only did he crown Captiva the most romantic beach destination, he awarded it the title two years running.

An island recognized for its abundance of shells and serenity, Captiva is ideal for a Florida beach wedding - ceremony, reception and honeymoon. Captiva's Chapel by the Sea is the perfect place to exchange seaside vows.

Wedding guests, nature lovers, active families, seniors and those seeking refuge from the stress of the modern-day grind will enjoy the panoramic views, unspoiled stretches of alabaster beach, exotic wildlife and lush foliage.
