Savor luxurious exclusivity...at this vacation Eden!
Beer Can Island Beach |
Whitney Beach |
Stretching between the Gulf of Mexico and serene Sarasota Bay, Longboat Key is positioned
just south of Anna Maria Island and north of Lido Key. There are no billboards, neon signs or shopping malls but,
tastefully hidden behind manicured landscapes are an array of resorts, up-scale shops and Zagat Rated restaurants.
Longboat Key Info
Many beaches are privately held for residents and guests staying at a beachfront
condominium or resort,however, there are two public beaches at the northern tip. Fringed by sea oats is
Whitney Beach where the crowd-less shore attracts sunbathers, walkers and shell seekers. Heading north from
Whitney and accessible only at low tide is Beer Can Island; a secluded sandy hook where boaters often congregate.
Then extending southward for eleven miles is Longboat Key Beach offering public access points from Gulf Drive.
Sand dollars are plentiful at low tide and sunsets are breathtaking.
