There is free parking on the beach access roads and dogs can swim and have fun. This section of Florida is truly dog friendly!

This was our third visit to the area and we love Boca Grande. The beach is beautiful and it's a great place for shelling.

Compared to the rest of the beaches in the area, this one was almost empty! The beach itself was very pretty, and there are shells everywhere! As for the ocean, it wasn't quite what the kids were looking for, as there is a pretty steep dropoff just a few feet into the water, but the water itself was just a beautiful color! The lighthouse provided a great backdrop for several pictures, and we really enjoyed our day here! We enjoyed a less busy beach, and were able to spread out more, and not have the kids on top of each other (or other families!)
The town of Boca Grande was cute, but definitely meant for the wealthy people that live in the area. The shops were very pricey, and the atmosphere wasn't as laid back as at many of the other beaches in the area. It was still worth it to enjoy the space and privacy we were able to enjoy here, though!

The $6 toll is worth it. Talk about rich and famous, this place has it all. Exquisite shops beautiful beach with plenty of turtles, dolphins and shells. The scenery on Boca Grande from the beach to the homes is heaven.

To come from dreary old England at this time of year to a place like Boca Grande Beach is like being beamed up to heaven! Had it not been for our friends who are familiar with the location when staying at Sarasota, we'd have never found this place. The beach has a Caribbean feel & the town, a Bermudan one.
