Longboat Key Life

Once a vacation land of the Timucuan and Caloosa Indians, Longboat Key is a quieter gulf-side retreat located between Lido Key and Anna Maria Island along Florida's southwest coast. The barrier island is surrounded by the beautiful Gulf of Mexico and Sarasota Bay. The island's eastern shoreline is covered in mangroves with hidden canals and marinas. On the western shoreline, you can walk for miles on the white sandy beaches and swim in the gentle gulf. Imagine spending your days beachcombing, snorkeling, kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, sailing, golfing, or cycling along the island's winding bike path.

Longboat Key is known for its abundance of dining options. With the Gulf and Sarasota Bay in its backyard, many restaurants focus on serving local, fresh seafood while visitors enjoy amazing waterfront views.

Just south and across the bridge is bustling St. Armand's Circle, a popular destination filled with boutiques, cafes, restaurants and tropical landscaped courtyards. Head north on Longboat Key, cross the Longboat Pass bridge, and find yourself on Bradenton Beach, Anna Maria Island and Holmes Beach. This area offers gorgeous, white sandy beaches, crystal clear water, fun waterfront bars, restaurants and a variety of shops.
