GREETINGS FROM PINE ISLAND
COME FOR A DAY, YOU WILL WANT TO STAY
Pine Island and Matlacha suffered many losses due to Hurricane Ian. However, Island businesses and residents are resilient and strong and many of our businesses have already re-opened, and others are opening soon. Please plan to include us in your travels. We are here and welcome you to explore our wonderful island.

We hope to see you soon!
Greater Pine Island Chamber of Commerce is proud to represent over 200 businesses in our little corner of paradise and would like to introduce you to our island and the businesses that call it home.
Pine Island is the largest island (18 miles long, 2 miles wide, with five unique communities) off Florida’s Southwestern Gulf coast. We’re just 15 minutes from Cape Coral and 30 minutes from Fort Myers, but our secluded, small-town atmosphere is a world apart! Surrounded by mangroves, three aquatic preserves, acres of palms, tropical plants, and fruit groves; we have escaped the cement and skyscraper development so predominant on other Florida islands.
The waters of Pine Island Sound provide some of the finest fishing in Florida and are a haven for birdwatchers and nature lovers. Hiking trails, kayak and canoe waterways, and ancient Indian shell mounds will add to your outdoor adventures. Home to many artists, authors, songwriters, and poets. Enjoy shopping in our fine art galleries and specialty shops. Dine in one of our wonderful fresh seafood restaurants, and stay in our charming accommodations. Continue to explore our website for detailed information about our unique Island and the businesses that will make you want to stay.
