Known for tasteful luxury and manicured surroundings, Longboat Key is rich in gorgeous beaches, wildlife and upscale amenities. High-end boutiques and five-star restaurants make it an ideal destination for vacationers who like their beaches on the swankier side. Ignored by spring breakers and devoid of the garish attractions that characterize many Florida beach towns, Longboat Key is one of quietest barrier islands on the Gulf Coast—and all the more beloved for it.
Its history includes tales of explorers and Native Americans, pirates and pioneers. There are grand mansions and even grander yachts, plus some of the world’s most beautiful sunsets lining the tranquil Gulf of Mexico.
Scores of retirees, young families and romantic couples relocate or visit each year to take advantage of the superb angling, shelling, biking, shopping, dining and the luxury homes that dot its 12-mile stretch of shoreline. Just minutes away from the cultural attractions of Sarasota and world-famous St. Armand’s Circle, Longboat Key is the ideal base from which to explore the area.
Although Longboat Key is a locale that prizes its tranquil nights and lazy beach days, it also offers plenty of opportunities. Let us take the guess work out of our island by providing our local services.
