Pros:

Cons:

Summary:

If you're looking for "pristine" and a tranquil/private beach, then Longboat Key is your nirvana. Unlike some of our other local beach options, LBK has little to no public beach access or parking. You will stroll miles of white sand encountering mostly residents and great blue herons closely monitoring the occasional fishing pole. Longboat was my first introduction to Sarasota almost 30 years ago and every time I packed to return to Boston I would say, "God, I was born in the wrong part of the country!"

Pros:

* Absolutely gorgeous * The beaches are stunning & very quiet * Variety of homes and condos in various price ranges * The only barrier island in Sarasota with a golf course

Cons:

* Can be expensive * Can feel remote from Sarasota/Bradenton depending on location * Some might find the population too elderly

Summary:

A gorgeous barrier island and perhaps a perfect spot for a winter getaway or retirement home. Definitely worth exploring of the homes are within the budget.

About Longboat Key, Florida

The northern half of Longboat Key is located in Manatee County while the southern half is part of Sarasota County. Access to the island is available via Bradenton from the north bridge or Sarasota from the south bridge. The entire island is located within the boundaries of the Town of Longboat Key, a Florida municipality incorporated in 1955.longboat_key_253

Longboat Key attracts vacationers from all over the world, and is popular among Europeans in both winter and summer months. Vacationers mostly visit Longboat Key to frolic on the beach and swim in the clear blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Other activities include boating, fishing, parasailing, jet skiing, playing tennis, shopping, and dining in either fine or casual restaurants on St. Armands Circle. In addition, Longboat Key is the only barrier island off the coast of Sarasota that features a golf course. Longboat Key is also conveniently located to Sarasota's culture district which is home to live theater, opera, symphony, ballet, movies, and art museums. All of the amenities of downtown Sarasota are within a short drive from the south end of Longboat Key.

North Longboat Key

To explore Longboat Key, you travel back in time when starting your road trip at the very North end. Here the quaint and historic Longbeach Village area dates back to 1912 when Longboat Key landowner Rufus Jordan constructed many of the early residences. Explore today's beautiful Key residences at real estate open houses and home tours, being sure to check out the current exhibition at the LBK Center for the Arts while in the area. You've no doubt worked up a thirst by now, so stop in at the MarVista Restaurant or Moore's Stone Crab for a cool libation along with your lunch. At both these legendary eateries you are looking out over the same waterfront view as the early Key settlers.

Your road trip continues as you drive south down the key past gorgeous beach-front single-family homes and condos to experience a totally different kind of island vibe at Jamrocks Jamaican Grill, a Caribbean restaurant & bar located along Gulf of Mexico Drive. Grab a Red Stripe and beef patty and sit out back on the water, watching the kayaks float by. Yeah mon, it's a must-do. Then pop into the LBK Historical Museum to get a final taste of Old Florida life with the Calusa Indians, well before all today's residences were built. This summer, take the time to explore North Longboat Key and discover the best of both worlds.

South Longboat Key

Come and "live la Vida Loca" on Longboat Key, Florida! While the phrase does mean "livin' the crazy life," it can also mean letting yourself go and livin' the good life. A crazy good life can be found year-round on LBK. The town is accessed on the south end by New Pass Bridge, a drawbridge that connects LBK to Lido Key and St Armand's Circle.

Starting from the south end, Gulf of Mexico Drive is the "main drag" that runs the entire 11 mile length of this picturesque barrier island. Cruise past landmarks such as Mote Marine Laboratory, Ken Thompson Park, the New Pass Pier, golf courses, condominiums, the historic Sarasota Sailing Squadron, numerous marinas and beautiful island neighborhoods and resorts.

lbkbayisles_640Some noteworthy destinations are nestled just north of St. Armand's Circle on Ken Thompson Parkway. Mote Marine Laboratory has been a leader in marine research since it was founded in 1955. All you budding marine scientists need to reserve your seat on a Sarasota Bay Explorers boat, the tour company that operates out of Mote Aquarium. Offering a variety of eco-boat tours, yours can even include a marine biologist to help identify the sea life that is pulled from the bay in your trawl net; puffer fish? stone crab? sea horse? Crazy! Livin' la vida loca, remember?

After all that seafood, check out the view from the New Pass Grill and Bait Shop. Since 1929, they figure they've sold about one million delicious "New Pass Burgers." Crazy! Help them increase that number.

Any sailors here? The casual Sarasota Sailing Squadron, also on Ken Thompson Parkway, was founded as a nonprofit organization by Sarasota residents. The Squadron grew out of the youth sailing program of the Sarasota Yacht Club in the late 1930s. The Squadron plays host to numerous national and international sailing competitions - check it out. What a view!
