Cabbage Key sits in the intercostal waters of Pine Island Sound south of Englewood, Florida and very near to Cayo Costa State Park. This one hundred acre under-developed island paradise can only be reached by boat or seaplane and has no cars, paved roads, swimming pools, tennis courts or golf courses on it. What it has and is famous for is natural and native Floridian beauty. This is due to an abundance of lush tropical vegetation including Cabbage Palms from where it got its’ name. The overall feel of the island is that of rustic “Old Florida”.

Lacing the island are nature trails with signs naming the flora and fauna trail for walkers to enjoy as they stroll through. The area is known for its fishing heritage as generations of fishermen have utilized its vast assortment of fish species. It is still widely renowned for its sport fishing, shelling and beaches. The Cabbage Key Inn and Resort supplements the feeling of Old Florida. It once was a circa 1928 house which had been built upon a 38 feet high Calusa Indian shell mound. The dining room was opened in the 1930’s and the bar began in 1944. Here you have six rooms to choose from or you may opt for one of seven cottages. The restaurant was made famous by Jimmy Buffet and his song “Cheeseburger in Paradise” and the walls are completely adorned with dollar bills past patrons have signed and left behind   There are few places left in Florida that can combine the laid back atmosphere, history and an air of yesterday’s solitude like Cabbage Key.
