Punta Gorda Isles

In 1958, P.G.I., Inc., named certainly one of Florida’s premier developers, began planning the communities of Punta Gorda Isles and Burnt Store Isles by carving channels over the mangrove “forest” of Punta Gorda. They engineered our 52-plus miles of concrete seawall saltwater canals, creating what MONEY MAGAZINE calls the “idyllic” neighborhoods of Punta Gorda Isles and Burnt Store Isles. Soon after the final phase of construction was completed in 1982, florida recognized the need for securing the coastlines, and legislated powerful regulations against future continuing development of mangrove coastline areas. Growth and development of communities such as the Isles cannot occur again.


The Isles offer both single-family and multi-family homes by means of condos, villas, and duplexes. Almost all of the properties sit on saltwater canals that lead directly to Charlotte Harbor then onto the Gulf, under 1 hour away by powerboat. The remaining home sites are dispersed out over two beautiful golf courses and a small attractive greenbelt area. Situated commercial sectors give you the services residents need most including banking, legal, dry cleaning, shopping, etc.


Our canal method is legendary. It really is over 52 miles long, each canal is really a the least 100 feet wide with depths averaging no less than 12 feet. The concrete seawalls are maintained from the city to ensure continued structural integrity. Daily tidal flows flush clean, salt water through the entire waterways bringing in hundreds of type of fish, a few of which are “good eating”.


At night perimeters of Punta Gorda Isles and Burnt Store Isles lies Charlotte Harbor, formed with the confluence with the Peace and Myakka Rivers. It really is one among America’s 10 cleanest bodies water cover up an area of approximately 129 square miles. Charlotte Harbor is a great cruising ground for both sail and powerboat enthusiasts. For that fisherman there’s no finer destination to catch tarpon, grouper, snapper or snook on the entire west coast of Florida.

Instead of the high-density towering developments who have blighted other Florida waterfront communities, our officials thought we would bare this shoreline as pristine as you can. No high-rises here. By Florida standards this can be a rural community. A large number of acres are actually acquired and dedicated being a nature preserve to ensure that our children and grandchildren will continue to love this particular area’s natural splendor.


Punta Gorda Isles property has a peninsula encompassed by beautiful Charlotte Harbor, while Burnt Store Isles, somewhat further south, lies nestled quietly off Alligator Creek, an all-natural passage bordering the mangrove preserve. Both communities are bound by enforced deed restrictions, intended to take care of the lush, tropical appearance and increasing real estate values, many of which include tile roofs, sodded lawns, under-ground sprinklers, and minimum/maximum square footage requirements for Punta Gorda Isles homes.


At the harbor’s edge, and the entrance to Punta Gorda Isles, will be the ever-popular Fishermen’s Village and Yacht Basin. The Village comes with a broad spectrum of boutiques, restaurants and yachting adventures to fit everyone’s pleasures. Comfortable rental units plus a 98-slip marina can be obtained.
