According to Wikipedia, “Boca Grande is a small residential community on Gasparilla Island, in southwest Florida.” I’d add that it is an affluent residential community, and quiet, sleepy in fact. A local told me the beach here doesn’t get crowded because of the $6 toll bridge that leads to the tiny beach community which is “known for its historic downtown, sugar sand beaches, blue water, and world-class fishing.” I was there on a Thursday night in early June, and I spent most of my time staring at completely empty streets.

It was like a ghost town, where most of the traffic was golf carts. Maybe it was the storm that appeared to be rolling in. I went to take photos of a sunset that never really transpired the way I had hoped. Regardless, I’d go visit again in a heartbeat.
