Matlacha is one of five communities on Pine Island, although technically, it is located on a smaller island in Matlacha Pass, east of Pine Island. It is an "Old Florida" fishing village home to many brightly-colored art galleries, island boutiques, seafood restaurants, and traditional Florida cottages. From a settlement of homesteaders, Matlacha developed into a rowdy commercial fishing village. The fishing industry flourished for decades and then essentially died with the banning of gill nets, which Florida voters approved in 1994 in a statewide referendum. Since then, Matlacha has morphed into a comfortable haven for artists, fishermen and just plain folk who love the smalltown Florida lifestyle.
