Narrow, Private Island near Nokomis
The narrow island of Casey Key is one of Sarasota's hidden gems, an isolated and exclusive enclave just off the sleepy mainland town of Nokomis. It's one of those islands where there is one way on, one way off - and the road is so narrow that locals joke you can reach from one side to the other by simply stretching out your arms. This combination creates a small stretch of high-end, secluded homes that a sprinkling of celebrities and writters have been known to occopy over the years. Those that are looking for the mainland don't need to travel far as nearby Nokomis and Sarasota are a short drive away. But anyone who travels to Casey Key will know from the moment they enter - there aren't many places left that feel like this hideaway.
