This is “a place unspoiled by high rises... high prices"... and "where the livin is easy". Separated by Lemon Bay, Manasota belongs to the community of Englewood that is shared by Sarasota and Charlotte Counties.

Englewood has transformed from years of farming, lumber, lemons and turpentine to a community that thrives on its beahes, nature parks, fishing, boating and so much more. Englewood is locatd just 85 miles south of Tampa Bay, 90 miles north of Naples, 50 miles north of Fort Myers and only 35 miles south of Sarasota. Englewood is easily accessible from U.S. Route 41 or I-75.

The Key of Manasota is accessed by two bridges. The north bridge leads directly from South Venice to Manasota Beach, with the most northern point reserved for an exclusive gated community. This is where tennis great, Martina Navratilova has a beachfront home. Manasota Beach extends beyond these homes and eventually connects with the city of Venice’s Caspersen Beach.

Just south of the drawbridge is a community boat ramp where boaters have quick, easy access to Lemon Bay and the Gulf. It’s also a place to see manatees, often a mother with her calf. A friendly dolphin has been know to hang-out there as well.

South of Manasota Beach, travel the canopied two lane road where extraordinary residences and beach homes are nestled in dunes or tucked neatly behind groves of trees. A bend in the road reveals breathtaking views of the Gulf of Mexico at Blind Pass Beach.

Peaceful seclusion bordered by lush tropical foliage and homes on one-acre lots are at mid-island. This is where The Hermitage, a 4-acre beachfront retreat is availed to writers, composers and artists to hone their skills while basking in natural beauty and solitude.

Continuing south to the south bridge and directly across from Englewood is popular Englewood Beach. Featuring a boardwalk, picnic tables, rest rooms, changing facilities, playground, volleyball and plenty of Parking... it’s in close proximity to restaurants, real estate, accommodations and novelty shops.

Finally, at the southern tip is one of Florida’s very secluded state parks, Stump Pass Beach. Home to manatees, gopher tortoises, snowy egrets, least terns, and magnificent frigate birds, Stump Pass claims the entire southern tip where visitors can explore the mile-long beach and hike the trails and boardwalks. Ranger-led turtle walks and beach nature walks are available throughout the summer.
