Placida sits on the southwestern tip of the Cape Haze Peninsula, where State Road (SR) 771 (Placida Road) turns into SR 776 (Gasparilla Road), and where Coral Creek and Gasparilla Sound meet.

This small community offers easy access to all the amenities of a larger destination with the quieter, laid-back attitude of Old Florida. Like Cape Haze, tons of activities are minutes away, from boating and fishing or swimming and shelling on Englewood Beach to parasailing and Jet Ski tours. The Placida Park Boat Ramp is the perfect place to launch your boat and explore, fish, and enjoy Placida Harbor and the surrounding waterways and secluded keys and islets.
