Living in Sarasota . . . and beyond

Abandon your shoes​ . . . .

​Perhaps Siesta Key Beach, with its legendary white crystal sands, cool to your feet on the hottest days, or Anna Maria with plenty of

public access and that "old Florida" feel.  So many 

choices with something for everyone - pick the 

beach that fits your personality - from small

and intimate to large with extensive amenities.

​It's all part of the Sarasota lifestyle.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​LONGBOAT KEY

Heavily residential, both resort-style condominiums and single family, Longboat Key can be best described as quiet and serene, with sparse, but often elegant dining.  Most of the beach access is private, available to guests of the resorts or the local residents.  Limited public access is available on the northern two-thirds of the island.

  • Beer Can Island Beach - Located on the northern tip of LBK, Beer Can Island is best accessed by boat or an ambitious trek on foot.  A fun, weekend party favorite for locals with boats, you can find dozens of them moored off the beach on holidays.  No lifeguards or public facilities.

  • Whitney Beach ​ - Just south of Beer Can Island and stretching down to about the 6600 block of Gulf of Mexico Drive, access to Whitney Beach is tucked away in a tight residential area.  Only 3 of the 4 access points offer parking. 


  • Longboat Beach​ - Extending from about the 2800 block of Gulf of Mexico Drive north to about the 6600 block.  Eight public access points offer limited parking, so arrive early on peak days.  No life guards or public facilities.
