So....where is this Matlacha?

Matlacha (pronounced mat-luh-shay) is one of three main communities that are considered part of Pine Island: Matlacha, Bokeelia, and St. James City.  This area is just west of Ft. Myers, and about 2 hours south of St. Petersburg, where we now live.

Matlacha has a population of about 735 per the 2000 census.  We were told by a real estate agent that all but 4 homes are waterfront. 

Matlacha is within boating distance to our very favorite places!  Boca Grande (where we got married), Sanibel and Captiva, and Cabbage Key.  Not to mention Boca Grande Pass, which is known to have the best Tarpon fishing in the world.
