“pleasant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Nice and quiet, great for shelling and fishing off the shore. Get to see dolphins up close, and little sharks and a variety of other fish. A little restaurant is just steps away.

“haven of tranquility”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

If you love the laid back life, this is the little town for you! Be prepared to share the road with loads of golf carts, the preferred method of transport of those staying/living on the island...and also available for rent for great fun even if only on a half-day visit though recommend much longer. Fell in love with the charm of the buildings. Lots of lovely one off craft/clothes shops and art galleries, well priced restaurants - enjoy ice cream sitting outside at the Loose Caboose and watch the world go by. Don't miss taking a walk down Banyon Drive with its old gnarled banyon trees draped with Spanish moss providing the perfect scenic tunnel to the beach. Dune Park is well worth a visit with loads of shells..and try to be near the car parking pull off at Causeway Key at sunset...a perfect place for taking photos of the moon rising on one side, and the sunset on the other.

“Loved shelling!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

We loved this beach! It was not crowded, and we spent a lot of time collecting shells! My five-year-old and I even found a large conch! He was so excited! It is a great beach!

“Just like the carribean”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Boco grande a haven of paradise. A getaway from the world. White unspolt beach if you go to the end of the island you pretty much get it to yourself. A must place to visit I guarantee you won't be disappointed.

“Boca Grande great>”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

We live a half hour from Boca and we go there at least 2 times per month to ride our bikes, swim and eat at the local restaurants. The water is beautiful, the restaurants are accommadating and the people are very friendly. I like it the most in the off season as things are not as crowded but we still go in season.
