TGIF: Santa Arrives Early at Gasparilla Island 

Historic Gasparilla Island Lighthouse.
























After being closed for an extended time due to Hurricane Irma, Port Boca Grande Lighthouse and the Historic Gasparilla Island Lighthouse have reopened just in time for the holidays. 


Located on white sandy shores off the azure waters of the Gulf Coast, Gasparilla Island is an ideal escape for lighthouse lovers and snow birds. The two Lighthouses offer much to explore. 


The Port Boca Grande Lighthouse was built in 1880. It has a museum shop with souvenirs, custom t-shirts and more. 


The Historic Gasparilla  Lighthouse was built in 1881 as the Delaware Breakwater Rear Range Light in Lewes, Delaware. In 1921 it was disassembled and transported to Florida. After a delay due to funding, the Lighthouse was reassembled in 1927 and installed on Gasparilla Island. 


You’ll find a pristine shoreline, cabanas and a walkway near the lighthouse. 


The Historic Gasparilla Island Lighthouse is being restored by the Barrier Island Parks Society.
