General Information

Brian and Mary McColgan

Fall in love with Useppa Island. Located on Florida’s southwest Gulf coast, between Sarasota and Naples. Just three miles from the mainland, be swept away by this enchanted paradise of sea and sky, abundant natural beauty, “Old Florida” ambiance and barefoot luxury.

Accessible only by boat, seaplane or helicopter, experience another time and place...where adults play croquet and ride bikes and, with children, there are no worries. Just tell them “be home by dark.” It’s where afternoons are spent on the water, swimming or boating, or on the court enjoying tennis or croquet. This “Old Florida” resort lifestyle offers an impressive array of amenities, modern conveniences, waterfront homes, with a dock almost at your door, and fun, friendly neighbors in concert with luxuriant privacy. There are no cars, only golf carts. No stop signs…only turtle crossings.

Did you know that bird watching is one
of the fastest growing nature hobbies in
the US?
Why is bird watching so popular? Birds
are beautiful, entertaining and inspiring.
This year-round hobby appeals to every
age group; whether for school-age
natural science exploration activities, or
pure pleasure.
Southwest Florida is a mecca for a wide
variety of bird life. Abundant natural
habitats, including the Everglades,
mangrove forests and tidal flats offer a
haven for many species of water birds.
Depending on the season, you’re likely
to see White Pelicans Reddish Egret,
Snowy Egret, Great Blue Heron, and
perhaps you’ll even catch a glimpse of the
endangered Roseate Spoonbill.
The climate lends itself to year-round
displays of dazzling birds of prey
including Bald Eagle, Osprey, along
with an assortment of hawk and falcon.
Woodland species include the Pileated
Woodpecker and Great Horned Owl.
Today bird watching on
Useppa Island is popular
with island residents.
Useppa is located just
west of Pine Island, in the
Pine Island Sound Aquatic Preserve.
The Preserve contains the three largest
colonial bird rookeries in the area,
located on Broken Islands, Hemp Key
and Useppa Oyster Bar.
Laura Stokes, Useppa resident,
professional nature photographer and
Chief Medical Officer for Useppa
Island’s Fire Department says “Our Great
Horned Owls are always a treat and every
year, around Christmas, they produce
an owlet! It’s fun to watch the little one
grow. This year the fledgling was very
outgoing and would swoop down to
have his picture taken every day around
A stroll along Useppa’s private beach,
or a walk on the Pink Path, shaded by
tall native trees, is a bird photographer’s
paradise. Experience the spectacular
show of birds for yourself surrounded
by sea, sky, and abundant natural beauty.
Make your escape to Useppa Island.
Paradise Without A Passport!
