Cayo Costa State Park - Gulf Coast Fishing
Cayo Costa State Park

Cayo Costa State Park is a state park located on the small barrier island of La Costa, near our Palm Island Vacation Rentals. La Costa Island is separated from Gasparilla Island by Boca Grande Pass, a region that is commonly called the “Tarpon Capital of the World” because of its splendidly preserved Gulf Coast Fishing waters. Famed for being the ultimate outdoor, beach paradise, Caya Costa State Park has over nine miles of pristine beaches and several acres of dense oak and palm hammock forests. The island is fairly remote with ferry and private boats as the only transportation to and from the state park. This creates a truly unspoiled region and visitors regularly see manatees and dolphins in the waters that surround Cayo Costa State Park. In addition to birding and wildlife viewing, vacationers also like to shell, snorkel and swim while enjoying a great day in the sun or playing along the beach. A large amount of shells are typically found at the south end of the island due to the oceans currents and land geography, so those hunting for shells should centralize their hunt around this area. Fishing is allowed at the park and fishermen can fish from either the shoreline or a private boat.

Cayo Costa State Park is a great place to visit if you are staying with us in one of our many Palm Island Vacation Rentals. The park is open from 8 a.m. until sundown year around and a small fee is charged to have access to the park. Looking for Florida Island Vacation spots?
