Matlacha: A Haven for Quirky Art

Matlacha, which is properly pronounced "mat la SHAY," is a small community located in Lee County, Florida. With a population of less than a thousand people, it is a place where tourists can get away from the quick pace of modern life and enjoy an extended taste of an old-fashioned Florida fishing village. The name of the community means "water up to the chin" and reflects the area's fishing heritage.

Matlacha is frequently cited as being located on Pine Island, one of Florida's barrier island, but in actual fact it is situated on a smaller island slightly to the east. Attractions that draw tourists to stay in holiday rentals in Matlacha include a profusion of art galleries painted in brilliant tropical colors, a variety of island boutique shops, traditional Florida cottage architecture, and several excellent seafood restaurants.

The Art Gallery Ethos

Art in Matlacha takes on varied forms, but the emphasis in most galleries is on presenting visitors with unique pieces that embody the uniqueness and quirky nature of Matlacha itself.

Bert's Bar

A casual dining experience not to be missed can be found at Bert's Bar, where the specialties include buffalo wings, burgers, pizza, and a variety of seafood. The Miami Herald newspaper has certified Bert's Bar as an official dive bar, but tourists might be more interested in the fact that the venue offers live entertainment on a nightly basis. From their tables, patrons can admire vast vistas of the ocean as they drink their beverages and munch on bar food.
