This picture is a little farther South at 1 mile out and 2,000 ft. You can see water on both sides of the island.

The airport doesn't look like much from the air

It is 18.85 acres of Agricultural Island in the Lee Islands which run up the Gulf Coast from Bonita Bay, Estero (Ft Myers Beach), Sanibel, Captiva, North Captiva, to Cayo Costa, Gasparilla and many inner islands to include Pine Island, Useppa and Cabbage Key where it is said Jimmy Buffet wrote "Cheese Burger in Paradise"
