Enjoy the spectacular scenery from a bayside restaurant, or take one of the popular sunset cruises and dance to live music as you watch the beautiful skyline change. A wonderful choice of restaurants and bars can be found along the shoreline, some lively and others more tranquil and relaxing. For a complete taste of Florida on your villa holiday, Sarasota offers dozens of great restaurants and fun entertainment; while in Naples and Fort Myers you can relax in a waterfront eatery and watch the pelicans gracefully skimming the sea.

James recommends
  • Bradenton beach, Anna Maria Island. A day on the beach watching the pelicans, searching for sea shells, a game of volleyball, and watching the sunset at the Sandbar restaurant.
  • All the family will enjoy the history of the circus at the Ringling Museum, old 50’s cars at the Classic Car Museum and the children’s science museum in Sarasota.
  • Explore the sophisticated delights of Sarasota, with its chic live music bars and restaurants and a sunset cruise from the harbour.
