Rotonda Sands Amenities Overview

Community Bulletin Board

Our community bulletin board will keep you updated on all of the happenings in our Rotonda Sands community. The board is located at 24 Harness Road.

Lakes & Canals

The chain of lakes and canals in the community are beautiful to look at, provide good fishing and great natural habitat for birds, ducks and fish. They are also part of the storm water management plan for the Sands subdivision.

The real purpose of the lakes and canals is to keep the area from flooding in the event there is a major rainstorm. All rain water from the roads and your property is designed to flow into these lakes. The lakes are owned by the Association and it is our responsibility to maintain them.

The lakes and canals are reserved for use by Association members and registered tenants only, not the public. As a member, please be courteous and do not fish directly behind/alongside someone’s house or yard. State mandated licenses and rules apply to all fishing in Rotonda
Sands. All guests must be accompanied by a property owner or registered tenant while using Association property. If you suspect someone is trespassing, call the Charlotte County Sheriff’s
Department non-emergency number: 941 639-0013.

Cape Haze Pioneer Trail

Cape Haze Pioneer Trail is a 13.7 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located adjacent to the Sands subdivision and can be accessed at the end of Harness Road. Although not managed by the Association, it offers the chance to see wildlife and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for walking, running, and road biking and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash.

One of the primary uses of this former rail line 'the Charlotte Harbor and Northern Railroad' was to transport phosphate from Florida's inland mining district to deep-water ships at Boca Grande.
