Gulf Front with Fantastic Sunsets overlooking 12 miles of glorious soft white sandy beach and smoothing ocean sounds. This is the most pristine and natural part of the Island. Enjoy long relaxing walks on the beach and fabulous sunsets. This feels more like a retreat -the Northern End of Longboat Key is unspoiled and is perfect for sunbathing, reading under an umbrella, swimming, paddle boarding, fishing, jogging, cycling, shelling and bird watching. Dolphins pass thru daily and sailboats float by in the distance. See more details below.
