Barrier Island Communities
Along the Charlotte and southern Sarasota County coastlines, a string of barrier islands sit just offshore the mainland.  Many of the islands are accessible by bridge and are profiled separately on our website. - This page focuses on the "bridgeless" barrier islands off of the Cape Haze Peninsula:  Little Gasparilla, Don Pedro, and Palm Island.

While these were originally separate islands, over time, wind and weather have closed the passes between them.  Today, barrier island residents have access to seven miles of beautiful, quiet beachfront along the Gulf of Mexico.  Many claim that the variety and quantity of shells on the island beaches are comparable to the famous shelling on Sanibel Island!

Little Gasparilla Island
Traveling north from Charlotte Harbor and Boca Grande, the first "bridgeless" island you reach is Little Gasparilla.  There are two condominium communities on the island, Hideaway Bay Beach Club and Placida Beach.  The remainder of the island is single family homes and lots.

The "Placida Freeway", running down the middle of the island, is a sand trail traveled primarily by golf carts and used by island residents to visit others in the community.  While many properties are second homes, there are a growing number of full-time residents.  Little Gasparilla is accessible only by private boat, by private ferries run by the two condominium communities, or by water taxi.

Don Pedro Island
Immediately north of Little Gasparilla is Don Pedro Island, home to Don Pedro State Park and single family homes and lots.  Various small communities on Don Pedro each have their own unique designs and "feel", but the residents all share their love of the water and the adventure of living on a secluded, bridgeless island.

Palm Island and Knight Island
Although "bridgeless", Palm Island is serviced by the Palm Island ferry, allowing residents to travel by car to and from the mainland.  Palm Island offers beachfront and bay front condominiums and homes. 

There is an active rental program for visitors who come to the Palm Island Resort on vacation.  The Palm Island restaurant, Rum Bay, is open to residents and visitors, and is accessible by car or boat.
