Sanibel Moorings Botanical Gardens

Imagine you are staying at a hotel on the beach, this could be anywhere in the world. Now imagine there is no landscaping, no color, just dirt. It doesn’t sound very appealing, does it?

Now take a second to imagine a Gulf-front property, lush with beautiful, colorful flowers, majestic palm trees, and lush foliage; completely surrounded by gardens. You now have a pretty good picture of what Sanibel Moorings is like in person!

Our Gardener welcomes you to a unique botanical garden woven around a beautiful beach-side resort. We hope you enjoy the hundreds of native plants and non-invasive tropical species which include collections of bromeliads, roses, hibiscus, orchids, palms, fruits, and cycads.

What is the best way to experience the gardens you ask? All of our guests are welcome to explore on their own and read the posted signage, or you can experience the gardens through an expert eye with one of the following options;
