Casey Key

Casey Key is a narrow eight-mile-long barrier island off the coast of Southwest Florida, between Sarasota and Venice. Named in honor of US Army Captain John Charles Casey, the barrier island extends from Siesta Key south towards the island of Venice, providing boaters with easy access to the Gulf of Mexico.

In addition to its stunning views and fun recreational activities, Casey Key is also an excellent option for growing families, as children living here can attend Pine View School for the Gifted which serves grades 2-12 and is the #1 rated public school in America.

Casey Key


Most of Casey Key was established as a conservation district in the 1970s by the Florida State Legislature, which gave the island the tranquil, secluded environment and picturesque quality it is blessed with today. Indeed, a large part of Casey Key’s charm lies in what you can’t find in the island – towering buildings, a winding network of roads, and bustling commercial hubs are absent due to building restrictions. Here, visitors and residents can simply soak in the island’s breathtaking scenery while spending relaxing days enjoying the wealth of activities the island has to offer.



Biking at The Legacy Trail

Biking is one of the most enjoyable activities you can enjoy in Casey Key. Biking along the slow, residential Casey Key Road is always a treat, but for a truly unforgettable experience, pedal along the scenic 10.7-mile Legacy Trail, which is considered one of Florida’s best traffic-free paved trails.

Pop’s Sunset Grill

Looking forward to a relaxing waterfront dining experience? Be sure to check out Pop’s Sunset Grill, one of the top waterfront dining destinations in the Gulf Coast. Guests at Pop’s can take in sweeping views of the Intracoastal Waterway while savoring a sumptuous meal or a cool beverage, as the restaurant offers seating arrangements ideal for any season, including a waterfront bar and dining, indoor dining, courtyards with fire pits, and more.

North Jetty Park

At the southern tip of Casey Key is North Jetty Park, a popular destination for anglers and visitors looking forward to incredible sunset views. During the winter, many people flock to the park to catch glimpses of dolphins and manatees who often feed here during the colder months.
