Taking Private Communities To New Heights

Pelican Bay is more than just a fabulous place to live, it’s a vibrant, welcoming community that provides more than most developments.  Carefully planned infrastructure, amenities, and green space make this one of Southwest Florida's best-planned communities, delivering a serene living environment to residents and visitors since its 1972 beginnings.  Pelican Bay offers 95 different communities, a mix of single-family homes and condominiums, which are spread out over 3.25 square miles, all having easy access to 88 acres of parks and recreation areas.  To top it off, three pristine miles of white-sandy beaches, with two private beach clubs and beachside dining, make this the ideal place to take in the famous nightly Florida sunsets.  With luxury living and exclusive amenities, Pelican Bay redefines what a beachside private community is, delivering everyday conveniences, plenty of housing options at various price points, the natural environment, and some of the friendliest people you will find in South Florida.
