Pirate Harbor, Florida
Tucked away amongst a bounty of mangrove islands, Pirate Harbor is a hidden treasure, buried on the eastern shore of Charlotte Harbor. Although internally masked from the fast-pace of daily life, Pirate Harbor remains within close proximity to a swashbuckling of fine dining, entertainment, shopping and more. By land, Pirate Harbor is a short drive south of downtown Punta Gorda and minutes north of Burnt Store Marina; by sea, the Harbor sits merely 12 miles from Boca Grande Pass, the gateway to the sapphire tides of the Gulf of Mexico.
In the mid-1950’s, an exploratory Connecticut couple, Erich and Lydia Quest, sought out on an adventure to discover the ultimate Floridian hideaway. “X” marked the spot when they stumbled upon 260 acres of unruffled bliss now known as Pirate Harbor. Although initially only accessible by a lone dirt road, Pirate Harbor now boasts natural waterways and man made canals that intertwine this prized community.
A pirate’s life awaits you in Pirate Harbor, being that street names mimic a buccaneer’s theme, with Jolly Roger, Treasure Island, or Captain Kidd Boulevards.
