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.
