In a word, "elegant" probably best describes the island of Longboat Key, Florida.  Longboat Key is a barrier island community located on Floridas west coast.  The Town lies within two counties.  The northern portion of Longboat Key is in Manatee County and the southern portion is in Sarasota County.  The island is surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico on the west and Sarasota Bay on the east.

 The trip along Longboat Key’s Gulf of Mexico Drive is one of the most beautiful beach roads in Florida. Tall palms and flowering tropical plants line well-groomed streets that lead to world-class restaurants and resorts, elegant condominiums and spectacular houses.

The area is popular among retirees and is also a popular resort and second home community.  Longboat Key has a population of approximately 8,000 permanent residents and grows to approximately 20,000 during peak tourist season.

Longboat’s hotels, resorts and beach houses maintain their own beaches. But not all Longboat’s beach areas are private, visitors are welcome, too. Heading north, one of the most popular public spots is Whitney Beach. Fringed with sea oats, its open shoreline and uninterrupted view of the Gulf invite beach-goers to take a long walk. After a day of sunbathing and swimming at Whitney Beach, be sure to take in a sunset. The view is awesome here!

More adventurous beach-goers might want to visit Beer Can Island, also known as Greer Island. Located at Longboat’s northern tip, this peninsula has 2,000 feet of primitive, sandy beach accessible by shallow draft boat. Visitors may walk to the island at low tide, but must remember to walk back to the mainland before sea waters rush in on the returning high tide.

For other public entries, look for blue and white “Beach Access” signs, or ask locals to direct you to Neptune Avenue Beach or Mayfield Street Beach. These are areas off the beaten path where visitors can discover their own piece of beachfront paradise. From manicured to secluded, there’s a beach for everyone on Longboat Key.
