                  Location

                  Little Gasparilla Island is a wonderful family getaway, completely safe for children. Located on the southwest coast of Florida, just north of Boca Grande, a quaint and elegant sea town, where you'll find shops & restaurants. It is about 1 hr. north of Fort Myers, 45 mins. south of Sarasota, and 1 1/2 hr. south of Tampa. It is known for its world class fishing for tarpon/snook and wonderful shelling. Golf carts are available for rent at the island so you can explore the miles of nature trails. If you do not own a boat, a water taxi is available for transportation to/from the mainland & for private tours. Boat rentals and charter fishing trips are also available on the mainland marinas.
