The city is on Sanibel Island on the Gulf coast of southwestern Florida, and is linked to the mainland by a toll causeway.
The city was formed in 1974 as a direct result of the main causeway being built in 1963 to replace the ferry, and the rampant construction and development that Lee County was allowing to occur afterward.
A temporary city hall for Sanibel was set up on the mainland in a Fort Myers hotel, until utilities and transport could be restored to the island.
