Boca Bay is considered by many islanders to be the “premiere” waterfront planned community on Gasparilla Island. The majority of these homes and neighborhoods are nestled onto former waterfront CSX railroad property with a rich island history. Most of these residences enjoy spectacular panoramic water views of, and frontage on, the pristine estuary known as Charlotte Harbor. Several Boca Bay homes have their own private boat dockage just out the back door for exploring the fishing and boating wonders. “North Village” residences offer a charming lake setting adjacent to the historic downtown of Boca Grande, a private Beach Club, community boat dockage, and the nearby Boca Grande Community Center.
