What I suggest if and when you find a home you are interested in, just go to google maps put in the address and explore the area, it is easy for you to tell where the next beach is, and by all means work with a Realtor who knows the area well and will not only make the appointments and show you properties but will also make sure you are preapproved and then guide you through the entire process.

Depending on where the location is in Port Charlotte the distance to public beaches may vary from 25-35 minutes. On the other hand, many homes in Port Charlotte have boating access which can greatly decrease your time to some wonderful and private beach experiences.

The water at the local beach is brackish. Englewood has a really nice beach and water is nice and just a few more minutes away.
