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.
You will not be disappointed. Typical comments of guests include:
'The ocean views were breathtaking!'
'Manny makes a great daiquiri! The food and drinks were delicious!'
'I loved falling asleep to the sound of the waves...I've never been so relaxed!'

I have loved discovering Boca Grande Island. There are few places in the world that are this easy to get to and yet offer the ultimate in privacy and relaxation that do not require traveling to a more exotic location. Anyone who I have ever taken to Boca Grande remembers it with great fondness.
I know that when I need to practice self care~Boca Grande is in my thoughts.
Nancy Valentine purchased this condo in 1989
Privacy was a major attraction along with the wildlife preserve atmosphere and the gorgeous, pristine beaches with few people.
It is a great spot for bird watching, shelling, reading and catching up on your interior life.
Located at the top of the Sanibel/Captiva chain of islands on the west coast of Florida, few who have discovered Boca Grande, ever return to the more well known Sanibel/Captiva resorts. The fact that Boca Grande has not suffered from the impact of development and commercializtion, it has conserved its original charm and intimacy with nature and the Gulf of Mexico on which it floats.
I also enjoy the fact that there is a year around community of residents and with this comes a well maintained community center, charming churches, a quaint town of shops, post office, yoga/pilates center, fire station, gorgeous library, and good restaurants.
This is a place where many wealthy people buy vacation homes in order to get away anonymously and safely with their children. It is a safe, relaxed community that takes pride in enjoying what nature has to offer in a tropical-like setting.
I suggest you do food and wine shopping before crossing the causeway bridge, as once you settle into the unit, you will not want to go any further than the beach. A magical spell will come over you once you realize that everything you need is right within reach, so you can actually relax and not worry about anything other that getting in touch with yourself and your family/friends. No theme parks, noise and commotion, you will find your self on one of the best vacations of your life!
If you have time to go off island, explore the ferry to Palm Island and their restaurant, Englewood beach with opportunities to rent jet skis, or drive up to Sarasota and take a day or two to visit the Barnum and Bailey Circus museum.
I have been to this island, but not to the Boca Grande Club until this trip. It was a fantastic experience and I look forward to returning on a regular basis. Great dinner at the restaurant. So clean, low-keyed and relaxing! Five stars!
