Burnt Store Marina & Country Club

Pictures from Burnt Store.

Nestled just inland of the eastern shore of Charlotte Harbor is Burnt Store Marina. Much of the land here is protected as a wildlife preserve and buildings are designed within these strict standards. This security conscious, gated, small community features a large marina with about 500 slips and country club living with golf and tennis. Boating enthusiasts will find great saltwater and freshwater waterways to explore both south and north and the renown Boca Grande Pass to the west allows access to the Gulf of Mexico. Leaving Charlotte Harbor may be a problem though, as there are many great fishing areas and small habited and uninhabited islands to explore as well as the world famous Sanibel and Captiva Islands which are almost directly across Charlotte Harbor. Burnt Store Marina is named after Burnt Store Road which had at one time - yes - an old burnt store on it.

 

Visitors to the Burnt Store area can easily tour the southwest Florida cities in the area. Going south, you'll have close access to Cape Coral,  Fort Myers and Fort Myers Beach.  Pine island including Matlacha, Bokeelia and St. James City are closer by water than roadway. North Captiva, Useppa, Don Pedro and Little Gasparilla islands are all just north of Sanibel-Captiva, which sits across Charlotte Harbor from Burnt Store. These smaller islands must be reached by boat. The Punta Gorda / Port Charlotte area is 15 minutes north. Venice and Englewood beaches are about thirty - forty-five minutes further and Sarasota is about a ninety-minute drive. Boca Grande can be reached easily by boat but by car, a circuitous trip through Charlotte County is required. The Southwest Florida International Airport is about an hour's drive and services this area.
