More About the Local Community

Part of Boca Grande’s considerable charm comes from its long, well-established history. The central village area is very historic, with several highly regarded restaurants and local businesses housed in stunning character properties.

The Loose Caboose is housed in a historic train depot in the heart of downtown and is family-owned and operated. They boast a large patio area for dining as well as fresh, local fish.

The Gasparilla Inn and Club is a Boca Grande institution. The building is a fantastic example of old Florida charm, constructed in 1911. The Inn is also home to the Pink Elephant, serving incredible local cuisine for over 60 years!

Gasparilla Island State Park is a beautifully protected area that is also home to the iconic Port Boca Grande Lighthouse, built in 1890.

Boca Grande is Spanish for "big mouth" and refers to its position at the mouth of the waterway, Boca Grande Pass, between the southern tip of Gasparilla Island and the Cayo Costa. Boca Grande has managed to established itself as an ideal and increasingly popular island getaway while maintaining strong links to its past. This combination has set it apart as one of the most unique locales anywhere in Florida!
