Longboat Key has its share of gorgeous white sand beaches that meet up perfectly with the azure blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. If you never left the beach, no one would blame you. But, there is plenty more to do and see, and you will eventually have to go home. Like all beach resorts of Florida, you can surf, water ski, jet ski, kite surf, and swim. The Gulf fishing is an experience not to be missed. Take a luxurious dinner cruise or rev it up a notch and try parasailing. Bring your clubs and your racket and have some fun on land also.
The Longboat Key Club has two championship courses and 45 holes on the gulf side of the island. The club also provides plenty of Har-tru tennis courts to sweat it out during a couple of matches. The small size of the island makes it easy to get around by bike or scooter, so hop on and head to lunch at one of the quaint beachcomber restaurants. Casual is the name of the game, but there is also a bit of fine dining, and all the fresh seafood you’ll desire. Culture thrives at the Longboat Key Center for the Arts, or the Longboat Key Historical Society museums.
The Centre Shops has quaint boutiques and souvenir stops, plus more fun eateries. Head over the bridge to Sarasota for a more urban experience loaded with city amenities. You can even dream a bit at a boat show at Cannon’s Marina. Saying “I do” soon? Longboat Key is a great place for your destination wedding.
