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.
