Boca Grande Beach

Great beach to ride your bikes to and look for shells. May even spend the day sitting on the beach watching fishermen.

I'm just writing a review for dogs. My boyfriend and I checked out this beautiful island while staying elsewhere. I'm not sure if beaches used to allow dogs but everywhere we went there was a NO DOGS sign to entrance of beaches.

We stopped for the day. We spent a few hours on the beach. My husband was able to walk to Main street to a cafe, Loose Caboose to check emails and get a drink and come back to meet us on the beach.

This is a beautiful beach! more beautiful then many others on the West coast of Florida. The beach isn't wide, but the sand is sugar white and water was crystal clear on the day we visited. There are bathroom facilities right on the sand and they are very clean.

Boca Grande is a clean, beautiful and friendly piece of paradise. Once over the causeway passing Placida, (cost is 6.00 car for causeway), the streets are lined with beautiful foliage and never ending rows of palms. Make sure you drive down BANYON street and see the breathtaking old unique trees lining the street. Amazing! There are many places to park... More

I hesitate to write this review because Gasparilla Island is destination unheard of to the overwhelming majority of florida residents. Its nice to have a secret spot to get away to from time to time. The beaches are among the best in florida, the water is clean and sunsets are breathtaking. So if you heard about Boca and decided to... More

Water reminds me of the Caribbean. Sand is a beautiful white. Plenty of shells to hunt through. So peaceful and scenic.

Whether you come by boat or car, this is a beautiful beach with convenient bath houses and relatively close restaurants and other amenities like a store with delicious ice cream. Ideally, I would tie up the boat at Boca Grande Marina (formerly Millers), rent a golf cart and head for the beach. Otherwise, there are lots of parking spaces near... More

Boca Grande is full of picturesque beauty. This is a good beach for sunning and gazing out at the water. It is NOT a good beach for going into the water. The scenery is spectacular but it is way too dangerous in the water. The gulf side attracts sharks and they can be seen regularly from planes checking out the... More

Boca Grande is a beautiful island. There is a$6 per car bridge toll to enter. Beautiful blue water, little shops and restaurants. Several beaches to choose from ($3) parking fee. Beaches have small pavilions for lunch, restrooms and showers to get sand off. Wonderful day trip!
