Just off the coast of Southwest Florida, midway between
Sarasota and Fort Myers near Englewood Beach lies a very special Island -
special because Don Pedro Island also known as Palm Island and the adjoining
island, Little Gasparilla, are in fact, a true
Island with a Gulf beach 7 miles long. There is no bridge connecting our Island to the hurried outside world.
This private, unspoiled Island is enhanced by seven miles of tropical, sandy
white beaches, peaceful lagoons and the crystal green waters of the Gulf of
Mexico. The beaches, shelling and swimming surpass all. The waters surrounding
the Island are world famous for fishing.
The population is
varied. Sea turtles, magnificent water birds, raccoons, rabbits, an occasional
bobcat, and an eclectic group of friendly "natives" are in residence
Gulf Shores and all this, yet without commercialism, highrises, crowds or
traffic. Only private homes and villas are scattered along Don Pedro Island's
and Palm Island's coastline. This, combined with warm Gulf Shore breezes and
sun-filled days provide the perfect environment for a true Island
experience. Florida vacation rentals and real estate on this beautiful
island is a Florida tourism dream.
