Boca Grande
Boca Grande is located on the Gulf of Mexico at the entrance to Charlotte Harbor.  As you cross the Gasparilla Island toll bridge driving to Boca Grande, the quiet beauty of this island community is immediately apparent.   Residents carefully protect the "old Florida" feel of their community.  Development has been restricted to low-rise condominiums and single-family homes.  The small downtown district, anchored around the old train station, has no fast food restaurants or major chain stores.

Boca Grande became a northern tourist destination when the railroad (no longer in use) was built to access Boca Grande's deep water port on Charlotte Harbor.  Famous families, such as the DuPonts, built winter homes on the island.  From January through April, "social season" part-time residents and visitors more than double Boca Grande's summertime population.

The island is also famous as a fishing destination, especially during the May-July "tarpon season" when tarpon gather in Boca Grande Pass.  Throughout the year, guides and locals fish the nearby Gulf and the backwaters of Charlotte Harbor for redfish, snook, trout, mullet, grouper, and other game fish.  

The quiet, upscale appeal of Boca Grande, combined with the limited available property on Gasparilla Island, cause Boca Grande's real estate prices to be higher than those in surrounding Charlotte County communities and more closely aligned to island prices in Sarasota or on Sanibel Island.

By car, you reach Boca Grande by crossing the Gasparilla Island toll bridge from Placida on the north side of Charlotte Harbor.
