Pirate Harbor FL Real Estate
Pirate Harbor real estate offers natural beauty surroundings with a Florida Keys atmosphere in an upscale waterfront community.
Before the 1950’s Pirate Harbor was just some vacant land along a skinny short road named Burnt Store Road. In 1958, the Charlotte County Board of Commissioners agreed to approve the subdivision of land in Pirate Harbor.
Pirate Harbor is considered one of Punta Gorda’s special secret jewels because not everyone has heard of it and is protected and surrounded by mangroves and is designed and constructed by a boating canal system that looks and makes you feel like the old world navigation canal system of Venice, Italy.
This laid back boating and fishing community is considered by its residents as a back-to-nature playland paradise. It gives you instant access to the second largest harbor in Florida, Charlotte Harbor. If you like the open ocean, Pirate Harbor is a mere 20 minute ride to the Gulf of Mexico.
