Homes for sale on Little Gasparilla Island tend to be built up on pilings, providing convenient storage, and parking space for golf carts, below. Few of the homes for sale on Gasparilla Island are larger than 2000 square feet, but they still manage to provide ample space thanks to the screened porches and open interiors. In Little Gasparilla real estate, you'll also enjoy the tall ceilings, cooling fans, and wood floors and ceilings. But, given the beautiful weather and lush, expansive surroundings, the great outdoors of Little Gasparilla will likely be the preferred living area.
And, if you're lucky enough to secure a waterfront property (which is not difficult on such a small island), you'll have the benefit of a private dock and the ability to traverse the waterways at your leisure, for fun, or for a quick trip to Placida to pick up the necessities.
Little Gasparilla Island Location
Halfway between the cities of Sarasota and Ft. Myers on Florida's Gulf Coast, just offshore from the small community of Placida, lies Little Gasparilla Island.
Little Gasparilla Island is the smallest, and southernmost landmass in a continuous archipelago including Don Pedro Island, Knight Island, and Thornton Key (often collectively referred to as Palm Island).
Little Gasparilla is separated from Gasparilla Island to the south by Gasparilla Pass. And beyond Gasparilla Sound is the large Cape Haze Aquatic Preserve and mouth to Charlotte Harbor.
Little Gasparilla is separated from Placida by Placida Harbor, which can be traversed by private boat or water taxi. Residents at Little Gasparilla make frequent trips to Placida to buy groceries, enjoy its many services and restaurants, and to visit its parks, marinas, or the Coral Creek Golf Club.
Little Gasparilla Island Attractions
Starting from the southern end of Little Gasparilla, visitors and residents can traverse 7 miles of pristine, secluded beach along the entire length of the archipelago. This beach is renowned for its beautiful shells and abundant fossilized sharks teeth. Lucky beach explorers may even see endangered sea turtles.
Other popular activities in the area include bird watching, fishing, swimming, and boating. And, at the end of every day, taking in the breathtaking sunset is an activity enjoyed by all.
The lack of paved road and cars on the island contribute to the natural beauty and serenity, making the island a haven for birds and wildlife, as well as people looking for a peaceful place to unwind and relax.
