Savor luxurious exclusivity…at this vacation Eden
Approximately a quarter mile long, Whitney
Beach is located directly across from Whitney Plaza at the north end of Longboat Key. This pristine beach extends
southward behind several condominium residences. A public parking area is conveniently located on Broadway Street just
west of Gulf of Mexico Drive. Bring what you require for this beach and other public access points for they do not
provide modern conveniences.
The vacation rentals on Longboat Key are
numerous. From luxury high-rise condominiums, tennis & golf resorts, rental vacation condos & villas to apartment
efficiencies and single-family homes; most with views of the beach or Sarasota Bay. This island paradise has no
billboards, neon signs or shopping malls. Longboat’s shops and Zagat Rated restaurants are tastefully hidden beyond
manicured tropical foliage. Recommended Accommodations
If staying on the island, leave the car
behind and hop a Trolley running north and South on Gulf Drive to more beach and shopping districts with stops at Mote
Marine Lab, St. Armands Circle and downtown Sarasota. Daily service runs from 6am to 11pm every 30 minutes.
