Boca Grande's historic village is located five miles south of the swing bridge and causeway and two miles from the Boca Grande Lighthouse and Museum to the south.

Boca Grande is a village without a stop light, and no doorstep mail delivery. It's a state of mind as much as a place.

The Anchor Inn is located in the heart of the Historic District and is within easy walking distance of restaurants, boutique shopping and the Gulf of Mexico. Golf carts are the preferred mode of transportation to all points of the island.

Gasparilla Island remains an undiscovered tropical escape. In less than two square miles, it combines uncluttered beaches, outstanding fishing, a multitude of wildlife, lush tropical landscape and a small village that caters to those who have chosen its way of life.

The island was first settled in the late 1800s. In the early 20th century, it was a haven for pioneering settlers and vacationers that have, for generation after generation, made and kept Boca Grande a special place in their hearts. Through the wonderful efforts of many of these people Boca Grande remains a well preserved island and village paradise of years gone by.
