Boca Grande (formally known as Gasparilla Island) is located off the southwest coast of Florida. North of Naples and south of Sarasota, it's part of the 'barrier chain' of islands that includes Sanibel and Captiva. Connected to mainland by a short, tolled causeway, what makes Boca Grande unique are it's miles of beaches and it's tranquil, relaxed, Old Florida feel: no highrises, no malls, no traffic lights, and no neon signs.
Despite it's small size (7 miles long and a half a mile wide), there is a wonderfully charming town on the island with excellent shopping, several very good restaurants, boat excursions, fresh shrimp boat, Yoga/Pilates spa, cool coffee shop and lots of shore birds to watch. You will have found a unique spot for total relaxation. Have been here for more than 20 years and still find new things to explore! Shangri-La stateside.
