Bird Key is one of the most prestigious residential neighborhoods on the Florida West Coast. Named Bird Key for the large population of birds who call the island home, the community is a quiet retreat from neighboring Sarasota and Lido Key. Home to only 510 residents, this exclusive waterfront neighborhood is just a few minutes away from restaurants, shopping and nightlife via the new fixed span bridge of John Ringling Causeway.
Bird Key was developed during the 1950s featuring custom luxury properties. The Bird Key Homeowner’s Association is dedicated to maintaining the elegance and charm while improving the quality and amenities of its residents. The center of the social scene on Bird Key is the Bird Key Yacht Club. The Bird Key Yacht Club has a wide variety of activities for boaters and non-boaters alike. The waterfront dining offers the best views on the island where members enjoy the gourmet fare. Membership includes a reciprocal membership to other prestigious yacht clubs in Florida including privileges at the Laurel Oak Country Club with its world-class golf course.
