Longboat Key

A sleepy barrier island with a very trimmed up, tropical vibe. It is mostly a combination of single family homes and Condo's. Big business and chain / franchise business are kept out or to a minimum to maintain it's peaceful serenity. This barrier Island has long been a destination for retiree's or people looking to vacation to a secluded island where privacy and peace are paramount and understood. You will marvel at the tidy streets, and tropical landscaping as you wind down Gulf Drive. The beaches on Longboat Key are well known for their white sand and azure waters.

Longboat Key was the vacation land of the Timucuan and Caloosa Indians for hundreds of years. Shell mounds have been found showing that picnics and community fish fries were common occurrences on our secluded island. In 1539, Hernando DeSoto is thought to have visited here with his scout, Juan Anasco, manning the “longboat” as it went through the north pass.

Today, Longboat Key's charms divided are between Sarasota and Manatee counties. Longboat Key offers waterfront golf, fine dining and luxury resorts. In fact, its 12 miles of white sand beaches have helped to make this a luxury Gulf Coast resort community. 

A large number of Longboat Key's nearly 6,000 residents are retirees who enjoy the island's championship golf course and tennis club, and its dining and shopping. Longboat Key brings you an elegant and scenic environment that offers the rare combination of breathtaking beaches and cultural activities – all within a relaxed and elegant lifestyle.
