“One of The Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

We love this beach. It is very clean, unspoilt and an ideal place from which to watch dolphins, manatees and the numerous bird life. It is also a fantastic place to watch the sunset and we will certainly be doing that when we return in November 2013. There is a lovely beach cafe/bar closer to Charlotte Harbour end of the beach too.

“Loved this beach!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

We spent the day here and spotted manatees, sea rays, dolphins, and many beautiful unbroken shells! It is very picturesque, from the gracefully leaning pillars leftover from an old pier to the lighthouse in the background. It was definitely worth sitting a few extra minutes in the construction as you cross the bridge. It is well worth the wait!

“Great spot to spend a day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Boca Grande has charm, great restaurants, and beautiful beaches. The causeway toll is now up to $6.00 unless you have a pass. There is lots of construction on the road in and out with new bridges being built. The bridge swings out on the half hour to allow boats through. The great thing about the beaches along this island is that they are public with free parking offered unless you opt for one of the state parks ($3.00 for the day at these which is a good deal too). Beaches are dog friendly except the ones in the state park and there is a lovely fenced grassed off-leash dog park near the main beach parking area. The beach area in the townsite is much narrower this year due to Hurricane Debbie which moved the sand out and down to the end near the lighthouse. The water is a gorgeous turquoise blue and it is not unusual to spot dolphins. Great shelling and shark teeth at water's edge. Wonderful peaceful place to spend the day.
