Boca Grande (more formally known as Gasparilla Island) is only 7 miles long and is located off the southwest coast of Florida north of Naples and south of Sarasota. It is part of the 'barrier chain' of islands that includes Sanibel and Captiva. Connected to mainland by a short tolled ($6) causeway and a manned swing bridge what makes Boca Grande unique are its miles of white sand beaches and its tranquil and relaxed Old Florida feel: no high-rises, no malls, no traffic lights and no neon signs. Yet despite it's small size there is a great little town on island with excellent shopping, galleries and several very good restaurants. This is a higher end island with property values ranging from $400,000 up to $15 Million. It is a spectacular getaway location.
