All reviews free parking shark teeth side street across the bridge white sand public access light house rent a golf cart clear water gasparilla island collecting shells plenty of parking state park strong currents off season great shells day trip
I live on Sanibel and this is the most beautiful sand and clearest water l have ever seen in FL. Don't miss it if you travel to Boca Grande. We rented a golf cart and traveled all over the island to various lighthouses and beaches.
This beach is nice and calm. Only a few people on the beach. We always park at 19th street as free parking. Can recommend this place for beach day. There is ko public restroom available where we go usually. This is a little a minus...More
My review has softened somewhat from a week ago.This urban beach has something for everyone.Surrounded by mid 70’s Miami style architecture it serves the local populace and guests well.The equatorial sun is strong,direct and hot.Really hot!Like surface of the sun hot!A great many people flick...More
On a recent visit we briefly explored one of the beaches close to Boca Grande. We had to pay three dollars to park but, by contrast, the car park had toilet facilities which were free!
The beach was almost completely deserted and offered a very...More
The island busy season is in the Winter. We went in summer. The locals were friendly which was nice. Very little was open. We rented a golf cart for the whole day and would have been happy for just 4 hours. Most of the restaurants...More
My wife and I along with our friends took a ride to the beach. We are not beach people, but if you were it would be a good place to go. I wanted to go there to see the lighthouse. I enjoy checking out lighthouses...More
The beach is quiet, beautiful beach, many shells, but during our stay they had a red tide algae bloom so the water was reddish and dead fish were all over the beach :( You were not able to get in the water. It didn't clear...More
This is one of the only beaches I will visit in SW Florida. Yes it costs a bit to get out onto Boca but this beach is one of the best available without having a boat. Beautiful white sand, great beach parks with plenty of...More
We have been coming here for 20 years. My husband and I even got married by the lighthouse at sunset. However, the idiots emptying the polluted water from Lake Okeechobee into the pristine Gulf,have caused the toxic red tide to ravage our paradise. Can't go...More
Returned home yesterday. Only thing that made me come back was picking up the dog at the kennel. I really missed him, but next time he will go with us! I had first made a reservation for Boca Grande Beach Club through Boca Grande Real Estate. He called me a couple of hours later to tell me that the unit was undergoing renovations the week we planned to come, but they upgraded us for free to Sundown. Okay, you've got us hooked. Next time we will simply go for Sundown, even though it costs...More

Boca Grande is South of the Tampa/St. Pete area,on the gulf coast. It is near Port Charlotte, and between Punta Gorda and Cape Coral/Ft. Myers. SouthWest of I-Drive. I have never driven between those two areas, but would guess it to be about a 2.5 hour drive or so.
Boca Grande or Anna Maria Island? (4 Replies)
Family of 4 (kids are 9 and 11). Want a laid back vacation. We would like to be on (condo) or near the beach (cottage) and walking distance to shops and restaurants. A pool would be nice - but not necessary. Would like to have a washer/dryer in the unit. We are traveling in april and would like to pay $1500 or less for the week. So fare we have found the Boca Grande Beach Club and a cute cottage on Anna Maria - but still looking. Also - we are flying in to TPA. THANKS!

I have not stayed the night on Boca Grande. It is also an old Florida, laid back island, with decent beaches, a golf cart/bike/walking trail, and a few good restaurants. The times I have been on the island, weekend days, it seemed really sleepy. AMI is also old Florida. In my opinion, there would be more for the kids on AMI. Cute miniature golf, more shops, a more gentle beach entry, more kids around. Both offer the beach, biking, walking, swimming. AMI is closer to TPA, by at least an hour....More
