When is Sea Turtle Nesting Season?

It’s Sea Turtle Nesting Season on Sanibel Island

While many of the locals love this time of the year, so does many of our guests do as well. Beginning on May 1st every year is the start of one of the most magical times as it is the beginning of turtle nesting season. This is when you will see sea turtles come to the shore on Sanibel Island to lay their eggs in their nest they have built. From the Sanibel Lighthouse to Blind Pass is where you will find most of the turtle nests. Turtle nesting season ends in October every year so while you are on vacation to Sanibel Island during the late spring to late fall months, know that it is turtle nesting season.

Help Protect Sanibel Islands Turtles

It’s Sea Turtle Nesting Season on Sanibel Island

We take protecting our sea turtles very serious as they have made their home on our beautiful island’s shore. We have over 100 local volunteers who check out the beaches every morning in search of new nests.  These volunteers do mark the new nests with flags along the beach, so if you happen to come across some while on your vacation, don’t disturb them at all. Here are a few rules to follow while you are on vacation on Sanibel Island during turtle nesting season:

  • Please stay at least 50 feet from the sea turtles and their nests.  
  • Don’t disturb the screens that are protecting and covering their nests. These screens help keep predators away from their eggs and hatchlings.
  • Please don’t use your lights on your phone during your nighttime stroll along the shoreline. This can cause them to become disoriented while they are on shore.
  • Please clean up after your day at the beach and be sure to bring in all your beach equipment at night time.
  • Please keep the beach clean from any trash that you may have while spending the day at the beach.  We want to help protect our beaches and the new turtles as much as we can!
  • If you happen to find a nest that isn’t marked or you need to report a problem, then please contact the sea turtle hotline at 978-728-3663.

While there are many other things that you can do while on vacation to Sanibel Island during the turtle nesting season, these are the most important ones we wanted to share. If you are still looking to book your next vacation to Blind Pass Condominiums this summer, now is the time to do so!  We can’t wait to see you and your family on your next vacation to our amazing Sanibel Island this summer!

Beach Bag Essentials for your Sanibel Island Vacation

Do you have a vacation planned to Sanibel Island this year? If the answer is yes, then we understand that spending the week sitting on the beach soaking up the rays is just what you need.  Staying in one of our 3-Bedroom condo rentals will keep you close to the beach but having the right things in your beach bag will allow you to enjoy your vacation. We have compiled a list to help you get ready for your next vacation to Sanibel Island below.

Beach Bag Items

Beach Towels

When you are on vacation making sure you have packed everything before you leave home is essential. So be sure to pack a towel for everyone in your family whether you are going to sit in the sun or swim in the ocean. Bringing an extra towel with you is always a good idea especially if you have little ones with you. Having a beach towel with a different design can help each member in your group remember which one theirs is. Another great thing that you can do to each towel is sew pockets onto the end of the towel. This way you can keep your sunglasses and phone close by while you play.

Sunscreen

Beach Bag Essentials for your Sanibel Island Vacation

The sun on Sanibel Island can be very hot so sunscreen is a must for any beach bag. Use a sunscreen that is designed for your beach activities such as waterproof, sport, high SPF, etc. Dermatologists recommend that you use a sunscreen with at least 30 SPF while you are enjoying the sunshine. And don’t forget to Reapply throughout your day as we don’t want you to ruin your vacation the very first day your here with a sunburn. If you happen to get a little too much sun while you are on vacation, remember to pack a bottle of aloe as well.

Bag for Sand Toys

Anytime you go on vacation with kids, you have to bring a ton of sand toys with you. We understand bringing sand back with you into your vacation rental is not necessary and can be quite a hassle. So, if you pack a mesh bag such as a laundry bag or a bag specifically for beach toys can help eliminate the mess. Just throw the sandy toys into the bag, give it a good shake or two and leave the sand behind at the beach.

Hats & Sunglasses

Bringing sunglasses and hats can be very useful for anyone who visits the beach. The sun is much hotter than it is in the north, so we want to make sure that your eyes and face are protected. Having sunglasses will protect your eyes from the sun bright rays and will offer you some relief when trying to keep an eye on your little ones playing. Whether you have a floppy hot or a baseball cap, you will be happy that you brought these along with you. Don’t forget to pack one for everyone in the family.

Baby Powder

Beach Bag Essentials for your Sanibel Island Vacation

This is one item that you may not have thought about, but it is a must whenever you visit the beach. Whether you are staying in a vacation rental or you decided to drive your car to the beach access, sand will be all over you when you leave the beach for help. So, bringing baby powder in your beach bag will magically get the sand off of your body without irritation and leave a nice scent too. This is perfect for everyone in the family and not just the kids.
