Tween Waters Island Resort and Spa

About Tween Waters

Come, enjoy Captiva Island’s or Sanibel Island’s best beach resort — the legendary Tween Waters Island Resort & Spa of Captiva Island, Florida. Of all there is to thrill to every day at ‘Tween Waters Island Resort & Spa — from our Gulf of Mexico beaches west to Pine Island Sound east, and everything b’tween — what will you treasure the most?

Located between the Gulf of Mexico and Pine Island Sound, ‘Tween Waters Island Resort & Spa boasts 13 picturesque acres of luxury resort including an extensive stretch of sugary, white-sand beach — named “America’s Most Romantic Beach” by Travelocity.

Dating from 1931, what began as a collection of fishing cottages now includes 137 units and cottages that vary from standard guest rooms, studios and three-bedroom suites to two- and three-bedroom historic cottages. Decorated in a rustic luxury style, many of the 19 historic cottages are named after the resort’s famous past visitors including Anne Morrow Lindbergh, J.N. “Ding” Darling and Theodore Roosevelt.

While the rooms are comfortable and cozy, most come to ‘Tween Waters for the miles of pristine beaches on its Gulf of Mexico side. Captiva and its sister island, Sanibel, are known to have some of the best shelling beaches in the world. You’ll see many guests bent in the “Captiva Crouch,” searching for the perfect specimens for hours on end. Shouldn’t every day be this good?

In 1931, a charming collection of fishing cottages first welcomed guests to this lush sliver of Captiva Island perfectly nestled between the Gulf of Mexico and Pine Island Sound. Today, our historic resort welcomes you with quality, comfort, value and island hospitality with 138 accommodations options including one-, two- and three-bedroom cottages and suites, studios and guestrooms.
