Welcome to the Windward Bay Community

Windward Bay is a premier waterfront condominium property on beautiful Longboat Key, Florida. Our community sits directly on the water's edge of sparkling Sarasota Bay and directly across the street from the turquoise waters and powdery beaches of the Gulf of Mexico.

As a distinctive residential community, Windward Bay covers 23 tropical acres and has 151 units. The property includes seven four-story residential buildings and 25 ground-level villas. The water views are spectacular. Windward Bay boasts lush, rich landscaping and spacious grounds. The lifestyle is open and independent. Our residents enjoy the outdoors and our close-to-nature setting.

Exercise, fitness, and recreational activities are a daily way of life at Windward Bay with two heated pools, two tennis courts, a fitness room, and saunas. Windward Bay also is unique on the island for our two marinas with over 35 slips for boats, as well as facilities for kayaks, and direct access to the Bay. Our grounds, which stretch almost a mile long, are great for walking and biking. We have two on-site property managers and an active social committee that organizes community events and outings. Windward Bay is pet friendly.

Longboat Key has award-winning fine dining restaurants, casual outdoor seafood fare, and breakfast and lunch venues. Internationally known St. Armand's Circle with its array of shops and restaurants and festive vibe is nearby. Windward Bay is adjacent to Sarasota -- the cultural icon of southwest Florida. Sarasota is rich in Ringling history, and is world renown for its performing arts and cultural offerings, its annual Sarasota Film Festival, its leading edge health care, its contemporary arts and design schools, and its premier lectures on global issues showcasing leaders from many fields.
