  • We explored the park and enjoyed a beautiful day on the beach. Parking is $3.00 on the honor system and all $$ support the park. Bring your lunch and spend the day!  more »
  • Historical state park. Not super big and no swimming but fun to walk around and play in the sand. Lots of cool sea shells!  more »

  • Great location. Feels like the Keys / Caribbean. Clean, spectacular vista's. Great Beach's. Clean and we'll managed. Did not want to leave. Will always remember that sound of the surf and sea life. A gem of a place.
  • $6 toll keeps riff raff away from this idyllic beach. Head to the state park and have you $3 ready to pay to park. (Unattended, so no change.) Adequate bathrooms. Try to ignore the 1% tooling around, life on the beach is good.
  • Always a terrific day @Gasparilla Island SP. We love surf fishing there & always catch fish. Beach is clean, great for shelling, & it only costs $3 to bring your carload in for a whole day. Park guys are helpful& lighthouse tour is great. I enjoyed shopping in gift shop inside the lighthouse too! Great postcards, tshirts etc. Wear good sunscreen cuz sun is bright & UV Index varies between 6-10!
  • Love Boca Grande. Great beaches, light houses, and the Museum is the best. Beautiful waters and homes. Rent a gulf cart and explore the island, lots of fun.
  • Beautiful park and beach. Great shell hunting, there were many different types of shells scattered every where. The day we were there, they had a jelly fish warning posted. We also drove to see the banyon trees, they were pretty neat.
