    Things to do on holiday in Punta Gorda, Florida

    The coastline of Punta Gorda is stunning. The sea positively sparkles in the sun providing a stunning contrast to the gleaming white sand of the beaches. Throughout the year, water temperatures in the Gulf of Mexico fluctuate between 16˚C and 26˚C, meaning you can wake up in your Punta Gorda Gulf Coast property and wander down for a refreshing morning dip at any time of year. And what better way to start the day with a quick dip followed by breakfast on the balcony of your Punta Gorda Gulf Coast property overlooking some of the most beautiful coastal scenery in Florida?

    The sea is almost always calm, with breakers rarely striking the beach, which is a real asset for bird watchers as heron, pelican, ibis and egrets can regularly be seen slowly going about their business on the beach and in the Gulf. There are free guided tours along over 4 miles of nature trails from November until April, and swamp buggy eco-tours through the murky world of the Telegraph Cypress Swamp.
