Imagine the possibility of spending winters or even everyday on Longboat Key. This fabulous barrier island paradise sits bounded by the Gulf of Mexico and serene Sarasota Bay. Successful retirees and investors looking at Sarasota real estate for sale typically narrow their search to Longboat Key known as one of the more acclaimed condominium destinations in the country. Longboat Key is revered by those searching for a refined permanent residence or possibly a luxury winter retreat complete with a lifestyle rich in recreational and entertainment diversions.

Getting to know the island intimately is as easy as hopping on a bicycle and navigating the 10 mile bike pathway running tip to tip along the islands length. Tennis and golf enthusiasts will enjoy the world class facilities but other than these diversions, owning real estate on Longboat Key offers much more for active residents. Water based activities rule this stunning paradise and vary widely from backwater and offshore fishing adventures to parasailing, kayaking, jet skiing, or windsurfing.
