The white sandy beaches, sparkling blue waters, beautiful shells and gentle slope of the shore of the Gulf of Mexico make the 11 miles of beach on Longboat Key one of the most inviting stretches of beach in the world! This world-class beach is only a 75 yard stroll away from your SeaSide Garden Retreat accommodations.

SeaSide Garden Retreat residents gain access to the beach through a tropical tree-lined public access path conveniently located across the street from our resort. Since public beach access is extremely limited, with only a couple beach-related public parking spaces on the whole island, the beaches are essentially private and never crowded.
