Depending on the location in Punta Gorda you are looking at 35-45 minutes to the nearest beaches during peak season. Perhaps slightly less during the off season. Punta Gorda enjoys great boating access opportunities that can greatly decrease your time and distance to some wonderful beaches.

Hope you find this helpful.

From 33955 the closest beach is at the Ponce de Leon Park in Punta Gorda, about 15 minutes away. This little white-sand man-made beach is really great for sunbathing or just relaxing, but doesn't offer good swimming alternatives. it is perfect to take the kids out and see the sunsets. There are a playground with bbq and tables connected to the beach, a fishing pier, a boat ramp and a nature walkway to enjoy. By boat, as soon as you leave either Burnt Store Marina or Pirate's Harbor youwill be able to access many pristine beaches, Now if you are interested in open beaches, Englewood and Boca Grande are probably your best options by car, to the North and Mattlacha and Fort Myers Beach to the South.

From the 33955 area of Punta Gorda, it will take at least 45 minutes to get to any of the area beaches. Englewood Beach, Casey Key, Boca Grande, Venice Beach are all nice places for the beach, however Siesta Key Beach is by far the best. Siesta Key is historically ranked in the top 10 beaches in the world and is just about an hour away from Punta Gorda. Hope that helps.

It takes about 45 to 50 minutes to get to the Gulf Beaches from Punta Gorda. You can go to Englewood Beach, Venice Beach, Nokomis Beach, or Ft. Myers Beach. They are all about the same distance.
