Dining: Although Silver Sands does not have an on-site restaurant, it is centrally located within a short drive or bike ride from local salt-water cuisine. Longboat Key restaurants include Harry's Continental Kitchens (0.5 miles), Euphemia Haye Restaurant (0.5 miles), Pattigeorge's Fine Coastal Cuisine (2.55 miles), The Dry Dock Waterfront Grill (7.1 miles), or The Chart House (7.7 miles).

Attractions: Longboat Key is known for its leisure days spent strolling the beaches or biking down the island. As a barrier island to the town known as the area's "cultural capital", an assortment of entertainment options can be found at nearby Sarasota where attractions and activities abound for all age groups.

All of the golf courses located on Longboat Key are private, however nearby Sarasota and Bradenton areas offer top-rated golf courses a short drive off the island.

St. Armand’s Circle of Lido Key is a must-see in the area. Located just 10 miles south of Silver Sands this European-inspired outdoor shopping arena includes a large selection of classy stores, restaurants, jewelry galleries, and more! Rumor has it that circus magnate John Ringling won Lido Key in a poker game and turned the sister island to Longboat Key into a world-famous attraction.

Wonderful unit. Very clean and spacious

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with 2 other couples had a wonderful weekend at Silver Sands. The unit had everything we needed. It was clean, spacious and updated. Check in was fast, friendly and efficient? just a short walk to a wonderful pool and beautiful Gulf of Mexico. The sunsets were awesome. This is definately a place we'll come back to. We would recommend .
