Little Gasparilla Island (LGI) is a bridgeless & roadless barrier island on the Gulf of Mexico, between Tampa and Naples. You leave your car at one of the marinas and take a 10-15 minute boat ride to the private dock and cottage. The island is approximately 7 miles long and approximately 1/4-1/2 mile wide. LGI is the perfect place to wind down and relax. You can take leisurely strolls on the beach, or explore the interior of the island along the many sandy paths. An option is to rent a golf cart, grab a cooler and just take your Sunday drive anytime you want. What about that book you have been wanting to read or going fishing either at the end of the dock or on a boat (either yours or a rental). Guides are also available in the area.

About: My wife and I (both 5th generation Floridians) have been coming here since 1975. We just love the area and the unique nature of Little Gasparilla Island. Our daughter grew up here on family vacations and now our twin grandaughters are discovering all the wonders of LGI.
