Boca Grande and Gasparilla Island


The jewel-in-the-crown of the local area, Boca Grande is a small residential community on Gasparilla Island, reached by a causeway with spectacular views, only 10 - 15 minutes drive from your Rotonda West holiday villa. Drive out to watch the sunset on one of the many white-sanded beaches, and enjoy the laid back old-world charm of Boca Grande. Visit the old Floridian style lighthouse and visitor centre or enjoy a relaxing meal in one of Boca's restaurants.
 
Fishing trips and leisure cruises depart from the marina on Gasparilla Island; huge Tarpon are a popular target for fishermen. A sunset cruise is wonderful; the dolphins who usually accompany the boat ensure a truly memorable experience.
