We went to Boca Grande on a spur of the moment trip. The beach was beautiful. The water was beautiful. And, to complete the trifecta, the sunset was beautiful if not spectacular. We wholeheartedly agree that this is the #1 thing to do on Boca...More

The beach and lighthouse was just the perfect location for a casual family wedding. Simple to decorate. Cool ocean breezes. FYI if you are planning your get together for after dark, be sure to bring light. Was not provided by the lighthouse.

Very nice river cruise, relaxing and beautiful view. We had two dofins following our boat most of the time. We rented a golf cart and explored the island. The houses were big and beautiful. The water was a beautiful blue and the sand white.

Beautiful. Could stay here forever. Love it. Great place to look for shells and sit in the sun. Pictures of the lighthouses are a must.

This is not a well known beach which is great. It is just north of the Port Charlotte inlet and a great place to visit. There are dozens of nice places to park, and always room to park. You can find areas that have a...More
