Gulf Tranquility



Within only 15-20 minutes drive from the villa are the six lovely white sand gulf beaches of Englewood and Manasota Key.


In Englewood there are 4 beaches which are approached via a causeway with beautiful views on to the barrier island of Manasota Key. These beaches have become very popular and are fairly family orientated offering a traditional boardwalk, recreation areas, picnic tables, a selection of restaurants and ample parking.

Manasota beach towards the northern end of Manasota Key boasts 14 acres of Gulf-front beach and sand dunes with areas set aside for recreation, barbeque pits, and bathhouse facilities. There are life guards on duty for most of the year and there is a boat ramp to give boat owners access to the bay.


Blind Pass beach situated in the middle of Manasota Key has over 50 acres dedicated to recreational use. This area is very popular for swimming and fishing with the added benefit of having a nature trail for the more active revellers.
