Located in the middle of serene Longboat Key, Beach Castle Resort is the perfect place to get away from it all and just relax on the beach right outside your front door. Evening boasts beautiful sunsets and perfect dolphin spotting opportunities. The bay side of the property offers a pool and hot tub, and the perfect place to launch a kayak or to simply watch the morning sunrise. If being active is your thing, take advantage of the Cedars Tennis Resort located at 645 Cedars Court - just up the street from Beach Castle. There you have access to 10 fully-lit Har-Tru tennis courts (after 1 p.m. daily and subject to availability), community bicycles, fishing pier and Jr. Olympic heated swimming pool. Guests will also have access to the Cedars Cafe & Tiki Bar and fitness center. Shopping at St. Armand's Circle and all the recreational opportunities of Sarasota Bay are just a beautiful 20 minute drive south. Although Beach Castle Resort does not feature an on-site restaurant, it is centrally located to nearby hotspots - some within walking distance! We recommend The Blue Dolphin Cafe, a local favorite that features the flavors of the island and is just a short stroll from your front door. The Lazy Lobster is also within a short walk and is wonderful for dinner or lunch. Longboat Key restaurants include Harry's Continental Kitchens, Euphemia Haye Restaurant and The Haye Loft Lounge & Dessert Room, The Dry Dock Waterfront Grill, Mattison's Steakhouse, and MarVista Backside Restaurant and Pub.
