A little more than one-half of the island is owned by the state of Florida and is managed as a preserve. There are about 320 homes on the island and of those, approximately 120 are available for rent. Four small restaurants, a general stores and two beach boutiques comprise the only stores on the island. There are about 70 full-time residents. Island transportation is by electric golf carts which helps to keep the island a peaceful and relaxing get-a-way. Beachcombing, fishing, and walking the nature trails in the State Preserve are a special treat for those who enjoy the simple things in life.
