Don Pedro Island and Palm Island

Don Pedro Island – also known as Palm Island because of Palm Island Estates - is a barrier island in southwestern Florida, near Boca Grande, FL. Historic Don Pedro on Charlotte Harbor was once home to the Calusa Indian tribe, a native people who first began the fishing and hunting tradition, and to colorful pirates and explorers. On Don Pedro Island you’ll find Palm Island Estates, Colony Don Pedro, Bocilla Pointe and more. The island is accessible by ferry or private boat. This secluded area is the home and private sanctuary of a few fortunate residents. Residents and visitors enjoy the benefits of state parks and recreation areas. This beautiful gulf front property is neighbor to Knight Island, Little Gasparilla Island, Rotonda West and Cape Haze.

The island has twelve public dock slips, a large picnic shelter, boardwalks, a serene one mile stretch of white sand beach, picnic tables, grills and a restroom with shower. On the bay side is Don Pedro Island State Park is lined with mangrove trees and you can often spot loggerhead sea turtles while walking on the beach in the evening. If you are very observant, you may also see endangered animals like the gopher tortoise, West Indian manatees, eagles, and oystercatchers. Activities on the gulf side include swimming, sunbathing, snorkeling, and shell collecting, and residents enjoy fine surf fishing, hiking and nature trails. The parks are located off the coast of Cape Haze and boaters will find Intracoastal Waterway directional signs to guide them to the park.

You won’t find any high rises on or around Don Pedro Island, and most roads are unpaved, maintained packed sand thoroughfares. The ferry runs to Don Pedro Island and serves Palm Island on a convenient schedule, from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and until 11:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. There are no tourists or crowds in this sanctuary – no public restrooms, fast food restaurants or concession stands. Residents and visitors travel by golf cart, offering a hearty wave and smile to passersby.

Here you will find the perfect home – perhaps a townhouse with a panoramic gulf view, a bedroom and/or living room deck or a screened porch, with covered parking and a private barbeque area. Enjoy long walks on the beach, deep sea fishing, kayaking, boating, biking and bird and wildlife watching, all within a short distance from civilization, conveniences and services.
