Pine Island consists of Matlacha (Mat-la-shay), Pine Island Center, Bokeelia (Bo-keel-ya), Pineland and St. James City with Ambiance galore.
Matlacha an old Florida fishing village. Loved by many artists. You will find colorful old buildings made into Galleries with handmade jewelry, stained glass art, paintings and island wear. Just a great place to visit for truly unique gifts and souvenirs.
Matlacha has the best Seafood Restaurants in all of Southwest Florida. Fish comes right of the boat and be rest assured that the fish is as fresh as it can be.
The drawbridge over Matlacha Pass is known as the "Fishing Bridge in the World," with anglers customarily fishing the bridge, night and day, in all kinds of weather (mostly sunny).
