Longboat Key is a 12 mile long island with white sand beaches adorning its western shore, and spectacular bay views back to the mainland on the eastern shore. With its pristine beach, waterfront, golf, fine dining, and luxury resorts, Longboat Key lives like a true luxury retreat. It is about evenly divided between Sarasota and Manatee Counties.

Longboat Key’s main thoroughfare, Gulf of Mexico Drive, was constructed by circus magnate John Ringling in 1925. Today Gulf of Mexico Drive is one of the most scenic drives, with glimpses to the Gulf and Bay along its length, highly manicured landscapes, and emerald colored fairways of the two championship golf courses of the Longboat Key Club.
Longboat Key has its own commercial centers, fabulous restaurants, and post office and shops. Again, you may arrive and not want or need to leave the island for days.
