Longboat Key Beaches
Free limited parking at Longview Drive, Westfield Street, Mayfield Street and Neptune Avenue. The public access points to the beach can be found by looking for the blue and white Beach Access signs labeled Neptune Avenue Beach or Mayfield Street Beach. Both are right on the Gulf but are less known, and therefore, a bit secluded. The beaches here are also quite wide and the sand is a bit softer than at some other beaches.
