Near the southern tip of Gasparilla Island lies the pretty village Boca Grande. A friendly community that has developed into a resort for the rich and the beautiful, but also for ordinary people.
Five beaches line the western part of the island and a stately inn graces the outskirts of the town. Visitors appreciate the casual elegance, the beautiful shops and the kilometer-long cycle paths on the island.
Off the coast are North Captiva, Cayo Costa, Cabbage Key and Useppa Island, which always fascinate visitors. North Captiva offers pristine beaches and several large luxury villas as well as two restaurants; On Useppa you will find the Collier Inn, a beautiful botanical path and the Barbara Sumwalt Museum (small but absolutely worth seeing).
On Cabbage Key time seems to have stopped. For example, there is a rustic hamburger - and fish restaurant with impressive views, surrounded by a cottages inn.
. Cayo Costa presents Florida's pristine coastal landscape in its best form: wide and white sandy beaches, rustic log cabins, campgrounds and a variety of birds and wild animals to watch.
All information about the region can be found here. (Incidentally, this is more of an economic side - but with a lot of information and always up to date.)
