Gasparilla Island

A quaint destination located on Gasparilla Island, Boca Grande offers the perfect recipe for an adventure filled with excitement, beauty, and relaxation. Only one-half mile across at its widest spot and seven miles long, the island has a charming appeal that is hard to miss – from its natural beauty to historical points of interest.

The island is situated on the Southwestern coast of Florida and nestled by Charlotte Harbor , Gasparilla Sound, and the Gulf of Mexico, circumstances that produce enjoyable opportunities to indulge in a variety of watersports.

Fishermen, boaters, and tourists have long been enjoying the waters, and a trip to the Lighthouse Museum and the century-old lighthouse should be on everyone’s list of things to do. Bike, hike, walk, or travel by golf cart to get from one place to another.

The weather is typically beautiful with warm breezes and the scent of ocean air wafting across sandy beaches, some of which are secluded enough to make you think you are alone on the island. To the west along the Gulf, the beaches are plentiful and covered with sugar sand speckled with shells here and there. To the east along the Bay, mangroves cover the shoreline, producing a colorful backdrop for boaters exploring the estuary.

If you are adventurous enough to go sailing or boating, the opportunity to photograph unusual species should present itself. Manatees, ospreys, and dolphins are only just a few of the species that might entertain you with their playfulness. Fishing has long been a tradition on the island, dating back many centuries to the Calusa Indians when fishing formed the basis for their culture.

Now, the island is a magnet for anglers who have discovered the richness of Florida waters filled with tarpon, grouper, kingfish, snapper, and mackerel. No signs of the hustle and bustle of the city exist to disturb your meanderings as you wander among the boutiques, enjoy local art galleries, or sample local cuisine from restaurants specializing in seafood and international dishes. Isn’t it time to reward yourself with an island vacation designed to entertain, relax, and amaze?
