Surrounding Areas To Explore
Looking to get 'off island' for the day? There are some great places to explore when off Boca Grande. Manasota Key, Englewood, Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda are all nearby.
|Manasota Key is another barrier island, located about 25 minutes north of Boca Grande. Here you will find a large public beach with parking, and several restaurants all within walking distance. Some local favorites are Lock N Key, The Sandbar, and The Waverly. All three offer outdoor dining and great views of the sunset. There are a few small shops, but most people come for the beach.
Manasota Key also has Stump Pass state park on the southern tip of the island. Just over a mile of beach where one can find plenty of shells and shark teeth! A 1.3 mile hiking trail, kayak and paddleboard launches can also be found at Stump Pass.
Most of the Manasota Key is residential with plenty of opportunity to find a beachfront place to relax on vacation.
