  • Stump Pass Beach State Park

    This is an EXCELLENT place to see unspoiled Florida. If you are kayaking from the launch at the parking lot, heading right (south) from the launch takes you between the south end of Manasota Key and Peterson Island (which is entirely within the park) along a waterway which is beautiful and unspoiled, offering great wildlife/marine viewing. At the south end of this route, which is frequented by dolphins, you can go right through Stump Pass out into the Gulf of Mexico, and, if you wish, travel north along the Gulf beach to land near to the State Park's parking lot, but on the opposite side of the island from where you launched. This leaves you with a very short portage with the kayak, back to your car.

    Wonderfully unspoiled beaches and hiking trail. You will see ospreys, bald eagles, herons, black racers, gopher tortoises, and dolphins to name just a few.

    Stump Pass combines a beautiful beach with a walking trail. The small parking lot ensures that the beach is never crowded. Great for swimming, shark toothing, shelling and dolphin watching.

    Rustic State Park on the Gulf of Mexico. Hiking trails on both the Gulf side and intercostal waterway. Great prehistoric sharks teeth gathering beach. Handicap accessible.

    At the southwest corner of Charlotte County, there is a mile of beach where seashells and shark teeth wash up, and anglers fish the surf for prize catches. Visitors can enjoy an excellent view of the Gulf of Mexico, as well as a stretch of undeveloped Florida coastline. Visitors come to this secluded beach to enjoy the year-round swimming and sunbathing; shelling is best during the winter months. A hiking trail passes through five distinct natural communities that provide homes for many species of wildlife; covered picnic tables are located along the trail. While at the park, visitors might see West Indian manatees, gopher tortoises, snowy egrets, least terns, and magnificent frigatebirds. Ranger-led nature hikes are available in the winter. Located at the south end of Manasota Key off I-75, exit 191.

    Great place to enjoy natural Florida or as many Floridians call it Old Florida. Within walking distance of the condo.

    A gorgeous, secluded park. Walk to stump Pass for amazing shelling. This is a great spot for a picnic or to 'park' your boat on the bayside for a swim on the gulf-side.

    Pristine beach on the Southern tip of Manasota Key. Less than a quarter mile from the house.
