Tasteful Luxury on Florida's Gulf Coast

Known for tasteful luxury and manicured surroundings, Longboat Key is rich in gorgeous beaches, upscale amenities and championship golf. High-end boutiques and five-star Longboat Key restaurants make it an ideal destination for vacationers who like their beach getaways on the swankier side.

Ignored by spring breakers and devoid of the garish attractions that characterize many Florida beach towns, Longboat Key is one of quietest barrier islands on the Gulf Coast — and all the more beloved for it. Scores of retirees and young families visit each year to take advantage of the uncrowded beaches, premier golf and tennis facilities, and luxury accommodations that dot its 12-mile stretch of shoreline. Just minutes away from the cultural attractions of Sarasota, it is an ideal base from which to explore the area.
