beach that connects Palm Island, Don Pedro Island and Little Gasparilla Island. There are approximately 750 platted lots in Palm Island Estates with close to 250 residences, 100 of which are families who live here year round. Palm Island Resort, at the north end of the Island offers a perfect destination vacation in addition to ownership. World class fishing, boating, shelling and fabulous sunsets are enjoyed on a daily basis. On island, transportation by golf cart or bicycle is the preference. Palm Island owners allow nothing to interfere with their desire for casually elegant, undisturbed relaxation and unfettered Florida living. You will slow down, gratefully put the corporate world behind you and slip into yourself again once you step onto Palm Island. Vacant land: $30,000 to Gulf front lots in the $600,000-$800,000.

family homes, around 350, which are mostly part-time residents. There are two condominium complexes; Hideaway Bay Beach Club has 102 units and Placida Beach Village has 30 units. Both have their own exclusive ferry service to and from the island. There are no formal commercial establishments on the island such as restaurants or grocery stores. There are however several great waterfront restaurants in our area that are just a short boat ride away. On the mainland there are many restaurants, grocery stores and shopping all within a short distance of the island. There is a small non-denominational church on the island that provides services each Sunday at 10:30 a.m. There are no paved roads on the island, only miles of sandy trails flanked by topical foliage.

the island called Boca Grande Pass which is found along the Gulf of Mexico at the mouth of Charlotte Harbor. Boca Grande is a quiet island town, rich in history and is a permanent home for some but is traditionally an island getaway unspoiled by heavy commercialization. When not fishing for the famous Tarpon also known as Silver King, many other sport fish can be found such as snook, redfish, grouper, king fish, and trout in the backwaters of Charlotte Harbor, Gasparilla Sound, or just off shore in the Gulf of Mexico. Boca Grande also boasts its own golf course and is a short drive from several off-island golf courses. If fishing and golfing are not your things, you will surely find enjoyment in the miles of peaceful white sandy beaches, boutique shops in the quiet downtown district, or even a spa getaway right on the beach.

Manasota Key is a unique barrier island located off the Southwestern coast of Florida between Sarasota and Ft. Myers. This island offers the true old Florida feel that we all beckon back to. There aren’t any high rises, traffic lights or traffic jams. There is

the family. The island is separated from the mainland by the intercoastal waterway. This affords homeowners the option of owning beachfront or bayfront homes or condos. If you are looking to play some golf or take the day and do some fishing that is always an option. This area of Florida has been largely undiscovered by the masses due to the lack of a major highway nearby. The Tampa International Airport is only about 80 minutes away. The Ft. Myers International Airport is about 90 minutes away. There are also direct flights into Sarasota and Punta Gorda from many locations across the country making travel to this piece of paradise a relative ease. Manasota Key has a wide range of real estate options. There are one bedroom apartments starting at $89,000. If you are interested in a home those start at $239,000. Currently the most expensive home for sale is a 4,574sqft Mediterranean beauty built in 2009. The list price is $6,500,000. That is a bargain when compared with other barrier islands around the state of Florida.

From the Tarpon rich waters to the action packed flats, great fishing abounds at every turn in our area. Like everything else, different times of the year offer unique opportunities to enjoy different types of fishing. As the sun begins to warm the coastal waters in the Spring, fish that were lethargic in the cooler months begin to find their appetite with vigor. Snook, trout, and redfish take up their stations on the flats presenting great opportunities for light tackle and fly fisherman alike. The explosive strikes generated by both live and artificial baits are the stuff legends are made of. Add the views of wildlife such as dolphins, birds and manatees and these can be the best of days.

Kingfish, mackerel, cobia, and pompano all show themselves en mass beginning in March well into the Summer. Limited commercial takes of these species have allowed numbers to swell in recent years. All these factors translate into unforgettable days on the water. Other species that have greatly increased in numbers due to increased protection are the offshore and deep sea species such as grouper, snapper, and permit. Pound for pound some of the hardest fighting and best eating fish on the planet. Delicacies to grace any table.
