Need another reason to visit us in December? How about a sunset stroll past Captiva’s “Chapel by the Sea,” bathed in holiday lights and a perfect example of the beauty of the season on our islands.
Captiva Island’s charming Chapel by the Sea — once a schoolhouse — holds services yearly from the second week in November through the end of April.
This year, you are invited to be a part of its Christmastime tradition, no matter where in the world you are. For many years, a cherished tradition has been to hang wreaths on the interior walls of the chapel, in memory and celebration of loved ones. The names of those remembered are then shared during the service on the Sunday before Christmas. This year, for a small donation, you can add a wreath of your own in memory of someone whose name will be included during the special service. For more details, click here.
Even if you can’t visit for Christmas, we welcome you to come relax with us either before and after the holidays. Ocean’s Reach is offering special rates for a pre-Christmas visit, when you can take in festive lights all over the island. And for those who will need a break after the busy holiday season, we still have availability for the first week of January. Please call us at 800-336-6722 to learn more.
