Punta Gorda Travel Guide: 28 reviews and 55 photos

As this pelican in the picture can attest, Punta Gorda is a neat place to hang out.
Lucky for us it is only about 30 minutes from our winter home in the Englewood area, so we can pop over for a Sunday afternnoon or just for dinner. It is a small friendly town located on a point jutting out in Charlotte Harbour.

The name Punta Gorda is Spanish meaning " Fat Point"
