Located of the Gulf Coast in southwest Florida, Rotonda is known for having relatively mild weather. Temperatures are at their hottest during the summer and while they can reach into the mid-90s, temperatures are typically cooled by comforting sea breezes.

Things to do
Rotonda’s southern border is framed by protected wetlands brimming with wildlife, such as bobcats, raccoons, and great blue herons.

Rest assured, you don’t have to travel far to find an exception golf experience either.
