The Ultimate Escape for Families and Couples

From fun family activities to truly romantic experiences, variety abounds to everyone’s delight. There is no place like Punta Gorda/Englewood Beach, The Charlotte Harbor Gulf Island Coast. Now that you’re booked on Allegiant and will soon be headed our way, we’re here to help you make the most of your visit no matter your vacation interests.

Stay

When it’s time to rest, relax and refresh for the day’s activities, you’ll find the perfect place to stay in Punta Gorda/Englewood Beach. From a vacation rental on the beach (or even on an island!) to hotels ranging from luxurious to laid-back, we’ve truly got a space and a place for everyone.

Play

Whether you're looking for the excitement of piloting your own two-person catamaran or craving the pure "ahhh" of being catered to on a splendid sailboat, we've got the water scene for you. Learn to stand up paddleboard, explore nature kayak trip, or relish our truly stunning skies on a sunset cruise.  You can even rent a Jet Ski or try parasailing! Or you can book a fishing charter to hunt for tarpon, redfish, snook or snapper, to name a few of fish that frequent the Charlotte Harbor and Gulf waters. We’re known for having some of the best fishing in Florida.

Our beautiful beaches offer soft sand, dazzling water, and tons of incredible shells and fossilized shark teeth. Nature is all around you, so our wildlife is also plentiful and diverse. Engage the kids with an eco-tour full of surprising sightings or visit one of our animal sanctuaries to get up-close-and-personal views. The kids will love our plentiful parks (several with elaborate splash pads and/or pools).  Downtown Punta Gorda is an easy stroll to find dining, shopping, sunsets, and harbor views. Couples will enjoy the scenic 2.5-mile Harborwalk adjacent to downtown. For the more active visitors, a hike on one of our nature trails will yield many awesome sights and memorable photos.

Dine

Of course, all that adventuring (even if it’s relaxing on the beach or lounging by the pool) works up quite the appetite, bringing us to the tastiest aspect of Punta Gorda/Englewood Beach: our eateries. From gourmet to grab-and-go, eating is its own adventure around here. We’ve got lots of options, with creative and healthy twists on classic favorites, fine dining, tiki and sports bar fare, and lots of fresh, tasty seafood. Not to mention great views and scenery.
