Surrounded by mangroves on three sides, just east of Wiggins Pass lies the quiet little area known to few as Gulf Harbor. This nature lover’s paradise is a step back in time when tiny fishing villages was how a lot of folks made a living around here. A mixture of small winter cottages and new Key West style stilt homes gives this neighborhood an ambiance unmatched in today’s cookie cutter mega developments. A 12 minute boat ride up the Cocohatchee River brings you to both Barefoot Beach and Wiggins Pass State Park. SHHHH, don’t tell anyone about this hidden gem.
