A Great little Island on the Gulf

This has got to be one of our most favorite places to go on the gulf coast so far. Wide open beaches, white sands, 2 lighthouses, and a feel that takes you back 40+ years. Come see as we share our small trip here with you.

Port Boca Grande Lighthouse

This lighthouse is located at the bottom of Gasparilla Island and was activated on December 31, 1890.
