About Longboat Key
The beach draws them here - the tourists, the retirees and those seeking a piece of paradise. But for many Longboat residents, after they settle in, the beach becomes a secondary amenity to all the other recreational opportunities within a sea shell's throw. If you get bored on Longboat Key, there's no excuse. In fact, we know a long list of so-called retired Longboaters who are busier now than when they pursued their careers.
The population of Longboat Key is approximately 5,937.
The amount of land area in Longboat Key is 12.743 sq. kilometers.
Longboat Key history:
Explorer, Hernando DeSoto and his scout, Juan Anasco, came through here in 1539, using their "longboat" as it went through the north pass. Much later, in 1891, Thomas Mann settled here on the north end receiving a homestead grant of 144 acres. One of his sons also received a grant of 144 acres on the south side. The incorporation date of Longboat Key: November 14, 1955.
