Welcome to Sarasota Bay Area!

Many travelers to the Sarasota Bay Area are captured by the beautiful scenery of the Gulf of Mexico. Nature provided this area with plenty of reefs, estuaries, bays and inlets, making it rich with fishing spots that feature fish like cobia, redfish, kingfish and tarpon. Parks such as Cayo Costa State Park and Don Pedro Island State Park provide visitors with a secluded environment to enjoy various outdoor activities. Of course, the white sand beaches of the area should not be missed. Anna Maria Island, Longboat Key, Lido Key and Siesta Key offer perfect locations to sunbathe and view the sunset. Various museums in the Sarasota Bay Area provide a detailed look back into the history of South Florida,while aquariums, such as the Parker Manatee Aquarium, allow visitors to have some interaction with marine animals. The Pelican Man's Bird Sanctuary in Sarasota provides an opportunity to see local birds, with over 55 different species represented.
