Manasota Key is a classic narrow barrier island snug against 17 miles of Florida west coast mainland. With the Gulf Of Mexico along the west and placid Lemon Bay along the east, this is a place for water lovers-- whether sportsman, naturalist, or someone wanting to be peacefully connected with the ever-changing water, never more than a minute's walk away.

The community of Englewood, on the mainland, is less than a mile drive over two swing bridges, one at the north end of the island, in Sarasota County, and another near the south end, in Charlotte County.

Englewood provides the Key civic amenities, along with a subtle attitude of rural living, metropolitan services, and a sense of community in balance with natural protection. The island itself provides the more close-in amenities of restaurants, shops, and taverns, all within the low-density, slow-paced, and old-fashioned charm of abundant tropical acreage, wildlife, privacy, and stunning Gulf-to-Bay vistas.

On the Gulf side of Manasota Key there are four pristine beaches, two of which are state preserves, and two are developed for public use with shelters, picnic areas, barbeque pits, boardwalks, and year-round lifeguards. On the protected Lemon Bay side, nearly the entire length of island and mainland provides public and private watercraft moorage. The north end of the Key offers a sheltered and personal atmosphere with secluded private residences, while the southern end is more commercially developed.

Palm, oak, pine, and mangrove woods create a canopy along and over the island's single two-lane road which provides access to the white dunes, beachfront, and bay amenities. Popular activities are shelling, swimming, snorkeling, scuba, surf-fishing, and boating-- for sport-fishers, sight-seers, and more energetic kayaking and wave-runners.
