Manasota Key beach rental villas on the Florida Gulf Coast. Luxury Gulf coast vacation rentals on Manasota Key.
Manasota Key is one of several barrier islands (or Keys) that run along the Gulf of Mexico coast of South West Florida. Manasota Key is approximately 10 miles long and lies 20 miles south of Sarasota.
Manasota Key Beach is a four mile stretch of sand at the northern end near to the town of Venice. It is patrolled by a life guard and has changing and shower facilities, barbecue area and ample free parking. It is an area well known for collecting the fossilised sharks teeth which abound on this coast and is a popular place to watch the evening sunset.
For most of the time the beach is virtually deserted but more popular at weekends. Separating Manasota Key from the mainland is the Intercoastal Waterway which is ideal for boating and is crossed by a drawbridge.
Disneyworld and Orlando is a two hour drive away.
