DON PEDRO ISLAND STATE PARK is part of the extensive chain of barrier islands extending along the coast within a short drive of your villa.
Between Knight Island and Little Gasparilla Island, Don Pedro is accessible only by private boat or ferry.
Here, you might spot West Indian manatees, gopher tortoises, bald eagles and American oystercatchers. With one mile of white sand beach, you can enjoy sunbathing, swimming, snorkeling and shelling on Don Pedro’s Gulf side.
Boat and surf fishing are other favorite pastimes of visitors to the 230-acre park. Hikers and nature lovers can explore trails of the Park’s land base portion on the Cape Haze Peninsula. The 100-acre land base also offers a fishing dock, nature trails and a picnic shelter.
