Living in Sarasota . . . and beyond
Abandon your shoes . . . .
and visit our world famous beaches.
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.

ANNA MARIA BEACH
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.
