Are you planning a vacation in Punta Gorda Florida? This Southwest Florida area offers several beaches near Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda FL. Let the professionals at Gulf Island Tours show you all the area has to offer beach lovers! Relax and catch some rays with Gulf Limousine service and leave all the hassles of navigating traffic and parking to us. Most people would never think of using a limousine service to visit the beach but a "land yacht" is the perfect way to see the areas and be totally worry free! Give us a call and we will help plan your "land yacht cruise" to Manasota Key where you will have a choice of four pristine beaches, all less than 30 miles from Punta Gorda, North Port & Port Charlotte!
After crossing the bridge into Manasota Key, Englewood Beach offers the closest beach access from Punta Gorda. In fact, it is also known as "Punta Gorda Beach." Right across the street from the beach there are pubs, pool halls, funky beach bars and restaurants sure to delight any beach goer! It can be hard to find a parking space at Englewood Beach but with Gulf Island Tours, you won't have to worry one bit about parking. While you're there, you might want to check out the beach shop then get your choice of beverages at the Circle K. Both are conveniently located right across the street from the wide expanse of Englewood Beach. Once there, you can rent chairs & umbrellas so there is really no need to carry more than a beach bag and cooler! So, when planning a day trip to a beach near Punta Gorda FL, we can take care your group coming and going to Englewood Beach so you can indulge in your favorite beverages with no worries what-so-ever!
Just a few miles from Englewood Beach is gorgeous Stump Pass Beach Park. After passing through the roundabout, a quick turn to the left at Englewood Beach you will enter Stump Pass Beach State Park. There you will experience a completely natural, unspoiled beach with hiking trails that extend to the Gulf of Mexico and to Lemon Bay on the canal side. Stump Pass Beach is a long peninsula on the far southern end of Manasota Key where you can go shelling or perhaps fish from shore! This fantastic beach near Punta Gorda is a nature lover's paradise but there are no stores nearby so plan accordingly.
Yet another beach near Punta Gorda is Blind Pass Beach Park. This area is also called "Middle Beach" because of its location close to the center of Manasota Key. A lot of tourists may not know about this beach but it is definitely our favorite! Be sure to check out the hiking trails thru the mangrove forests and keep your eyes peeled for Herons, Cranes, Egrets and Ospreys! We love this area since once you journey "around the bend" of Blind Pass it is usually an uncrowded area. In our opinion, it is "Old Florida" at it's best. Again, no worries about navigating or parking because with Gulf Island Tours, we will drop you off at a location you like the best and then pick you back up as soon as you are ready to leave. This area is one of the few places left on the Gulf of Mexico where you can drive along the road and have a beautiful open view of the beach and water! That's why our customers like it the best - they can ride along and pick out their favorite spot to spend the day on the beach.
Finally, another fantastic beach near Punta Gorda FL is Manasota Key beach at the northern end of Manasota Key. Though still on Manasota Key, this beach is just over the county line between Charlotte and Sarasota County. Keep in mind though, this beach tends to have more of a "drop off" than a gradual slope so is a often somewhat deeper. This is good if the water is calm and you want to do some snorkeling. This end of Manasota Key appears seems to go on and on! After storms, there is great shelling and shark tooth collecting here. During the ride there, you will pass under a tropical forest canopy (that feels like a cave almost!) for a few miles! Depending on your needs, this beach near Punta Gorda might be perfect. There are bathrooms and showers there but again, no stores are nearby so pack a cooler for the day.
