The beaches of Punta Gorda/Englewood Beach line miles of the Gulf coast. Most are easily accessible yet quiet and remote. Our beaches attract our local treasure of abundant birds, dolphins, sea turtles and other wildlife.
There are usually no big crowds here, just plenty of white sand lapped by gentle waves from the Gulf of Mexico and decorated with colorful shells and fossilized shark teeth.
You can even see what's going on before you go—or enjoy the beach remotely—with our Englewood Beach Earth Cam.
