Who hasn't dreamed of watching the sunset from their deck; of taking an early morning walk along a quiet beach, searching for shells; of swimming in warm waters in front of your home or along glorious white sand beaches; of taking a boat out to deep water to sail or do battle with the big fish; of playing a round of golf with the gulf as your backdrop. That's what life is like on Sarasota's barrier islands.
So what are you waiting for? This is the place. Now is the time. Beach, Bay or Back Nine...Live the Dream™
