Shopping and Dining

With the Gulf of Mexico on one side, and Pine Island Sound on the other, it's no surprise that Fresh Seafood is the favorite dish on Upper Captiva Island.

There are two restaurants on North Captiva Island, Barnacle Phil's and Mango Island Cafe.

Barnacle Phil's is located at Safety Harbor and is a favorite with local anglers, sightseers, and vacationers. There is plenty of dock space, and you might even see Florida otters playing near the docks.

Known for Roberta's world-famous black beans and yellow rice, Barnacle Phil's offers indoor dining or you can eat outdoors under the Tiki Hut. The menu features Caribbean and Island favorites including seafood chowder and jerk-style fresh fish and chicken. For lunch or dinner, there are also salads and mainland favorites, as well as children's items.

Just about any visit will find you in the company of friendly guests and locals, smiling and laughing about "the fish that got away".

Mango Island Cafe is located at North Captiva Island Club, just across the harbor. There is also a small deli and pool bar at the Club.

Convenience and limited grocery items are available at The Curiosity Shop, upstairs at Barnacle Phil's, as well as at the deli, upstairs from the North Captiva Island Club offices. To stock up on provisions, you'll need a trip to the mainland, or stop at Publix grocery store on your way to Upper Captiva. They'll even pack your order in advance.

North Captiva Island has two shops for beachwear, Island souvenirs, and unique tropical gifts: The Curiosity Shop, upstairs at Barnacle Phil's, and Coconut Connection across the harbor.

If this isn't enough shopping, Sanibel and Captiva Islands are a short boat trip away, and many of our visitors do a little island-hopping during their stay.
