It’s a modern city today, but Fort Myers traces back some of its history to wild and crazy pioneering tourists. The first settlers arrived in what we now call Fort Myers by ship in the mid 1800s.
Punta Rassa is an ideal Florida lifestyle location. The Punta Rassa Condominium Development fronts the waterfront neighborhood in southwest Florida. It is a beautiful area located at the tip of the mainland just before the Sanibel Causeway and has some of the best water views and sunsets in southwest Florida.
On a stretch of land less than 15 acres along the Caloosahatchee River, there stands a peninsula lined in palm trees called Punta Rassa. It is a beautiful area on SR 867 just before you cross the bridge for Sanibel Island that is highlighted by county recreational docks, and a boat ramp, condominiums, a yacht club and a 4-star resort and spa. But a rich history of colorful characters marks Punta Rassa, one with Calusa Indians, Spanish explorers, cowboys, soldiers, telegraph operators and commercial fishermen.
