Gasparilla Island and the village of Boca Grande

Discover the charm and beauty of Gasparilla Island’s hidden gem – Boca Grande!

Boca Grande, located just a few miles south of Englewood, is a quaint residential community on the stunning Gasparilla Island in southwest Florida. With its picturesque surroundings and warm hospitality, it’s no wonder why Boca Grande has captured the hearts of residents and visitors alike. This island has a rich heritage with ties to fishing and maritime traditions. Explore how these influences have shaped the local culture and lifestyle. From boating and fishing to golfing and exploring nature trails, there’s something for everyone here.

An island with two counties

Gasparilla Island is home to not one but two counties – Charlotte and Lee. While Lee County governs the larger section of this little piece of paradise, the charming village of Boca Grande falls entirely within the Lee County portion. Come and see for yourself, and Experience the unique blend of cultures and local flavors that make this island truly special.

Your gateway to paradise

Escape to Gasparilla Island and immerse yourself in its natural beauty. From pristine beaches to lush landscapes, there’s something for everyone here. Whether you’re seeking relaxation or outdoor adventures, Boca Grande is the perfect destination if you’re looking for a tranquil and exclusive getaway.

The Population fluctuates

The island’s permanent population hovers around 2,000 locals. However, in season, when the snowbirds are flocking to this enchanting paradise, this number represents only a fraction of the actual number of residents. Gasparilla Island has a long tourism history because of its tropical splendor, where you can get lost while wandering on the seven miles of pristine sugar-white sandy beach. 

When the railroad became obsolete, the islanders had a brilliant idea. They converted the railroad line into a bike path. This path stretches from the north down to the State Park, making every part of the island accessible by golf cart or bike. Residents and tourists are encouraged to leave their cars at home and use those electric vehicles instead. 

Tourism and fishing are still the economic basis of this tranquil tropical barrier island. During the busy winter months, visitors and second homeowners rub shoulders with local fishermen and longtime residents. During the off-season, which includes the top summer months, it tends to get quiet on Gasparilla Island. Islanders and people from the mainland are enjoying the sun and the beach. A manatee family is always greeting swimmers at the state park, and anglers in small boats are trying their luck in the Boca Grande Pass. 

The Island looks different today.

Even thirty years ago, the number of accommodations was limited, but today, condominiums and modern homes dot the tropical Island. Many single-family homes are only used part-time by their owners while rented out to vacationers the rest of the year. 

Of course, that changes the overall character of the tropical Island in certain spots. However, it did not destroy the general appearance of this little spot in the sun. The picturesque town of Boca Grande looks much like it did a century ago, and the lighthouses add to that last-century flavor.
