Englewood

 

Englewood calls itself the Gem of the Suncoast.  Covering part of both Charlotte County and Sarasota County, it has a total of almost 10 square miles of land and almost 4 square miles of water, and a population of more than 32,000.  Englewood Beach (previously known as Chadwick Beach) is one of four beaches associated with the Gulf Coast community.  All four are located on Manasota Key, a barrier island that stretches along the coastline of southwest Florida.  At the southwest corner of Charlotte County, there is a mile of beach where seashells and shark teeth wash up, and anglers fish the surf for prize catches. Visitors can enjoy an excellent view of the Gulf of Mexico, as well as a stretch of undeveloped Florida coastline. Visitors come to this secluded beach to enjoy the year-round swimming and sunbathing; shelling is best during the winter months. A hiking trail passes through five distinct natural communities that provide homes for many species of wildlife; covered picnic tables are located along the trail. While at the park, visitors might see West Indian manatees, gopher tortoises, snowy egrets, least terns, and magnificent frigatebirds. Ranger-led nature hikes are available in the winter. Located at the south end of Manasota Key off I-75, exit 191.
