Pelican Island is a residential community on Tampa's west coast. Surrounded by Tampa Bay, neighbors enjoy fishing, boating, golf, tennis and fresh sea air. There is a mix of waterfront and non-waterfront homes in this gated enclave of custom-built houses. The canal and bay access leads out to Tampa Bay and then out to the Gulf of Mexico. It is five minutes from Tampa International Airport and is nestled near Rocky Point Golf Course and Skyway Park, which is home to both tennis courts and a biking and jogging trail out to the Courtney Campbell Causeway.
