You'll revel in the simple pleasures here on Don Pedro-Palm
Island & Little Gasparilla Island. Take a swim in the sparkling Gulf waters, or in a freshwater pool. Cast
out a line for some of the area's best fishing. Whether you are fishing for the
"big guys" or just trying to catch
dinner, you'll not be disappointed, as the waters surrounding the Island are
world famous for fishing. And if shelling is your passion, you have come to the
right place. Many years ago, the islands joined, forming the seven miles of
continuous white sand beachfront you see today, abundant with a variety of
Mother Nature's finest shells.
Don Pedro State Park is
accessible by boat. There you will find a mile and a half of tranquil beaches
that are yours for the day.
The population is as varied as the activities on the Island.
Sea turtles, magnificent water birds, raccoons, rabbits, an occasional bobcat
and an eclectic group of "friendly natives" are in residence year-round.
