The naturally beautiful Pelican Landing community encompasses 2,365 acres in Bonita Springs. It is bordered on the south by Spring Creek, which the State of Florida designated an "Outstanding Florida Water," and on the west by Estero Bay, an aquatic preserve leading to the Gulf of Mexico.

Careful planning and development of Pelican Landing has preserved the pristine natural beauty of this community. Winding roadways throughout the community are shadowed by majestic live oaks, pine trees and other native trees and vegetation. Intimate neighborhoods are filled with wild palmettos, slash pines, and Florida's state tree, the sabal palm. Homeowners are encouraged to use existing vegetation in their landscape plans and to supplement with native plants as much as possible. By working with nature, our homeowners enjoy a community that blends with its natural setting.

Pelican Landing goes to great lengths to preserve, protect and enhance the natural environment. Throughout the community you will see the evidence of this commitment. Lush cypress hammocks, protected wildlife and preserved wetland areas are an integral part of the community's design.

Pelican Landing had its start in 1985 with the creation of Pelican's Nest Golf Club. The course was designed by golf course architect Tom Fazio to serve the nearby Ritz Carlton and Registry hotel guests from sister community Pelican Bay. As Pelican's Nest grew in popularity, the developer began purchasing the surrounding property for development. In 1989, the new community, named Pelican Landing.
