New Gulf Coast Villa


If you enjoy ‘wetting a line’, the Gulf of Mexico along the West coast of Florida has an abundance of fish. There is wonderful local fishing and you can fish from a pier, from a boat or from the shore. Whichever you choose you are required to acquire a fishing licence. They are available for non-residents and can be purchased at sport stores, bait and tackle shops and some retail stores. You can check the local bait shop or marina for the availability of a licence.
