Known as "Old Florida", Placida is located on a peninsula that juts between the Gulf of Mexico and Charlotte Harbor. Think there are no more quiet, secluded areas left along the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico? Think again! Placida is a little-known gem that enjoys the enviable position of blending desirable urban amenities with the charming remnants and the laid-back atmosphere of its old Florida past. It features an array of homes, many occupying oversized home sites highlighted by mature tropical vegetation. Numerous residential properties sit astride man-made canals or lie along the natural harbor, allowing for ease of nautical access to the Gulf of Mexico and its magnificent maze of estuaries. Unlike many other Gulf Coast communities, Placida is still largely undeveloped and free of crowds and congestion.
Placida has every amenity that you could want from a small beach community, from great restaurants and bars to golf courses, grocery stores and more. It's the ideal spot for boating enthusiasts, sports fisherman, or anyone enjoying a beach community lifestyle. With pleasant weather all year long, you can enjoy canoeing and kayaking, swimming and shelling, nature walks and more. And relaxing in the warm Gulf breeze in a quiet, off the beaten path setting is possible every day in Placida.
The population of Placida is approximately 1,600. The median home price is $600,000. Homes range from moderately-priced single family homes to affordable waterfront condominiums to luxurious million dollar beachfront properties.
