Florida at its natural best; News.

DREAMING of a holiday paradise that really lets you escape from day-to-day life? Fort Myers and Sanibel on the Gulf of Mexico showcase some of the best beaches and natural vistas in Florida.

The state is renowned for its laid-back lifestyle and barefoot luxury where the pace of life is slowed right down. Demonstrating that Florida doesn't always have to be about thrilling theme parks, this area is the perfect destination to retreat to after a busy city break or cruise adventure.

A haven with something for everyone, families can enjoy fun water sports or exploring the area's abundant wildlife.

Meanwhile, couples can find solitude in secluded coves on the white sandy beaches and spend a romantic moment watching the sun go down.

The gorgeous castaway islands of Sanibel and Captiva in particular boast pretty spectacular beaches.

As the islands are quite sparsely populated, it makes for an even more relaxing experience, where you can soak up the beauty of some of Florida's most natural beaches.

the However, it's not just the sun, sea and sand that attract visitors to the shores of Sanibel. Beaches covered with exquisite shells washed up from the Caribbean attract shell aficionados - or conchologists - from across the world looking to discover and add to their collections.

If you're there with the family, what better way to get the kids involved than to join in one of the regular shell hunts around the beaches and see what treasures you can find? When the sun sets, there's plenty left to do, from enjoying the melt-inthe-mouth cuisine to partying in vibrant bars and clubs.

As expected from an oceanside location, seafood is highly celebrated and there's plenty of fresh fish on the menu to tantalise your tastebuds.

And if you're not quite ready to turn in for the night after dinner, you can always dance till the early hours in one of the cool, chic waterfront bars.

However you imagine your perfect holiday, let the longhaul specialists at Barrhead Travel create the perfect Fort Myers and Sanibel experience for you. Call today on 0141 242 1300 to find out where your next memories could begin.
