Boca Grande is one of the Barrier Islands located north of Sanibel and Captiva. Visitors to the event are encouraged to spend the whole day on the island. You can rent a bike or golf cart at the festival and travel and shop along the island via golf cart and bicycle. All but two roads on the island permit golf cart travel. Boca Grande, Florida, on the Grand Barrier Island called Gasparilla, is a step back into “Old World” Florida, a carefully preserved part of Florida’s history and beauty. Located on the Southwest coast of Florida, midway between Ft. Myers and Sarasota, Boca Grande is a retreat for tourists and fishermen. Seven miles of pristine white sand beaches stretch the entire Gulf side of the island, while protected waters weave in and around the natural mangrove shorelines along the bay side. The nucleus of Gasparilla Island is the unincorporated village of Boca Grande, located midpoint on the island.
