Longboat Key, FL: Private & Elegant Island Living

Located in both Sarasota and Manatee counties, the 11-mile long barrier island of Longboat Key has many accolades to its name, the most recent of which comes from Condé Nast Traveler.

Last October, Longboat Key was recognized by the magazine's 2015 Readers' Choice Awards as the ninth best island in the U.S. Only one other Florida area, Amelia Island, made the list, while the top spots went to islands in Hawaii.

Privacy & Seclusion

Located between Anna Maria Island and Lido Key, Longboat Key is the most private of Sarasota's barrier islands. With an already secluded and relaxed atmosphere, shops, restaurants, amenities and condominium complexes are either hidden behind manicured tropical foliage, or blend seamlessly with the lush natural surroundings found on Longboat Key.

Breath-taking Surroundings & Beaches

Longboat Key has some of the lushest and most beautiful tropical surroundings in the Sarasota area. Average year-round temperatures are in the mid-70s, letting residents and vacationers alike enjoy Longboat Key's pristine, white sand beaches. Stretching almost the entire length of the island's Gulf coast, each beach has something a little different to offer its visitors. Longboat Key beach is definitely the busiest, and is great for people watching. Whitney Beach remains rather unspoiled, and is perfect for those looking to enjoy some peace and quiet.

A Variety of Real Estate Opportunities

Families, retirees, second-homeowners and vacationers will find a number of Longboat Key real estate opportunities available to them. Single-family homes and condos can be found along both the Gulf and Sarasota Bay coasts, as well as within residential neighborhoods. Whether you're a boat enthusiast looking to moor your yacht in Sarasota Bay, or a family looking for beachfront, maintenance-free living, you'll find it here on Longboat Key.

Outdoor Recreation at its Finest

Outdoor recreation on Longboat Key is essentially limitless, but many people especially enjoy the island's professionally-designed championship golf courses and tennis clubs. Wildlife-viewing is another popular pastime, as are boating, fishing, and simply soaking up the sun.

Elegant Shopping, Dining & Amenities

Longboat Key is also well-known for its elegance, which is evident in its exquisite boutiques, five-star restaurants and luxurious, resort-like amenities. Even more upscale shopping, dining and entertainment opportunities are available in nearby downtown Sarasota and St. Armands Circle on Lido Key.
