Find the best place to stay — Englewood Beach

Soak up the Floridian charm of Englewood Beach

Perched on Florida's glittering Gulf Coast, within easy driving distance of thrill-packed Orlando, Englewood Beach is the Sunshine State at its most blissfully laid-back. Its unspoiled coastline offers a picturesque combination of palm-fringed white sand and vividly blue water. Nearby, you'll find independent boutiques and irresistible restaurants where you can feast on freshly-caught seafood whilst taking in tranquil ocean views. But the town is in no way over-developed, and has retained the sleepy fishing-village vibe that attracted visitors in the first place. Englewood Beach vacation rentals range from cozy condos to lavish beachfront houses, so you're bound to find one to suit.

Watery escapades around Englewood Beach

Englewood Beach is a prime location for fishing, its clean waters teeming with king mackerel, grouper, and snapper, to name just a few of the local ocean-dwellers. If angling isn't your thing, you may prefer to explore the seas at a leisurely pace by kayak or paddle board. If, on the other hand, you're in search of an adrenalin fix, you can rent a waverunner and skim across the water at high speeds. Should you prefer to stay on dry land, you could kick off the day with a gently invigorating beachfront yoga session, and end it with an ice-cold cocktail in hand, marveling at a sensational sunset.

Englewood Beach's awesome arts scene

The Englewood Beach region boasts a thriving arts and culture scene, with an abundance of treasure-filled galleries and vibrant venues to check out. The Lemon Bay Playhouse is an inspiring community theater, which plays host to an eclectic program of riveting dramas, side-splitting comedies, and dazzling musicals. The Englewood Area Historical Museum offers an immersive trip down memory lane, tracing back local history over 10,000 years through a collection of ancient artifacts, historical homewares and captivating vintage photographs. A short drive from your Englewood Beach vacation rental will bring you to the Clyde Butcher Gallery, which showcases the work of the legendary photographer best known for his exquisite evocations of Florida landscapes.

Warm winter sun on Englewood Beach

Englewood Beach's subtropical climate ensures dry, pleasantly warm weather between November and February, which makes it an extremely popular spot for a sunny winter getaway. Naturally, Englewood Beach vacation rentals are in high demand during this period, so be sure to book well in advance. Spring and fall are also great times to visit, with slightly fewer out-of-towners. During the summer months of June to August it can get very humid, with a good chance of rain and tropical storms. However, you can still expect plenty of sunshine, and you may find good deals on accommodation.

Hang out with dolphins at Englewood beach

You'll find a wealth of natural spectacle virtually on the doorstep of your Englewood Beach vacation rental. A highlight for many is a trip out to sea to marvel at playful dolphins and adorable manatees splashing around in their natural habitat. Birdwatchers should keep their eyes peeled for majestic hawks, bald eagles, and osprey circling overheard. Near the beach you'll also find dense mangrove forests, ruggedly beautiful scrublands, and tranquil trails to explore by foot or mountain bike.
