Welcome to Matlacha where you will be introduced to a bit of local history, experience great Florida seafood, discover a haven for artists, and, of course, find phenomenal fishing. Enjoy the colorful, small village charm with great food and friendly locals. Matlacha is located west of Fort Myers and boasts the “fishingest” bridge in the USA. It is a secluded spot of fishing bungalows and old country cottages. Island time begins here so prepare for a relaxing, unhurried, old fashioned good time.
In addition to the quaint fishing town, Matlacha is located just a few minutes away from convenient shopping, and restaurants. The beaches of Sanibel and Captiva can be accessed by boat or by car. A daily ferry departs from Bokeelia, a fifteen minute drive from Matlacha, and takes you to Caya Costa State Park where you can plan a day trip or camp for the night. For evening entertainment, there are many restaurants on Matlacha with live music and fabulous water views. For a night on the town consider historical downtown Fort Myers with its restaurants and monthly events. There are so many different possibilities based on your vacation needs. Come and experience all that the area has to offer.
The “Bay Breeze” is a waterfront gem, with Gulf access, fully equipped for your short or long term stay. Our 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom cottage comfortably sleeps 6 adults.
