Hickory Island and Bonita Beach
Hickory Island has the best mailboxes. Since there aren’t gated communities and condominiums are limited home owners have the ability to express themselves at the curb. This mailbox is on Melody Lane.
There aren’t a lot of streets on Hickory. It’s a narrow strip of land that separates the Gulf of Mexico from the back bay our limited version of the intracoastal waterway. Every home on Hickory is walking distance to Bonita Beach and many homes have gulf access, plus there is a boat ramp just down the beach at Bay Park North and about 2 miles away at Carl Johnson State Park.
Real estate pricing on Hickory Island begins under the $500,000 price point [August 2010 pricing] for cottages without direct gulf access.
