The Boca Grande Lifestyle
As soon as you cross over the Gasparilla Island bridge on Florida’s Southwest Coast, you begin to appreciate the serene beauty and exclusive privacy of Boca Grande that has attracted presidents, dignitaries and celebrities since the early 1900s, including the George H.W. Bush family, the Rockefellers, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, the Astors, the du Ponts, Audrey Hepburn and Harrison Ford.
Boca Grande is the main attraction on Gasparilla Island. Its name (Spanish for “Big Mouth”) comes from the mouth of the waterway, called Boca Grande Pass, at the southern tip of the island, which is over a mile wide and up to 86 feet deep and one of the deepest natural inlets in Florida.
The Hotel Boca Grande, the island’s first small hotel, opened in 1911. Sunday trains brought visitors for a day at the beach, and some of them purchased property on the island and built homes.
Enlarged in 1913, the hotel became an elegant world-class resort. Renamed the Gasparilla Inn, it doubled in size again a few years later, when the island became a major vacation destination for wealthy northerners. Today, the Gasparilla Inn & Club is one of the largest surviving resort hotels in Florida and a member of Historic Hotels of America.
Boca Grande homes are elegant and unique. Contemporary tropical architecture mixes with Mediterranean, coastal chic and old-Florida style homes. Islanders and visitors alike use bicycles and golf carts to get around town, and boating is a way of life.
Residents enjoy a historic downtown area, azure waters, and seven miles of sugar sand beaches, while recreational fishermen from around the world come for the thousands of tarpon that converge here from April through August.
