Enjoying the beauty of a sunset on the island is truly a great experience---especially when a lighthouse can be enjoyed at the same time.

I really enjoyed seeing the lighthouse "peek" over the sand dunes toward the beach. The dunes are not to be walked on, stood on, or sat on---this regulation is strictly enforced by the lighthouse staff.

Old Port Boca Grande Lighthouse was completed in 1890, automated in 1956, and has a square wooden octagonal-shaped tower atop a square house. The height is 44 feet. The dwelling is supported atop screw piles. It's beacon has red flashes.

A person is able to drive up right next to the lighthouse. There is a picnic area with benches, and the beach is right next to the lighthouse. A fantastic lighthouse to visit...the area surrounding is so beautiful also.

***Directions: From Placida, follow signs to the Boca Grande Causeway and toll bridge leading to Gasparilla Island.

***If you have a photo of this lighthouse, that you'd like to share...please email me.
