Bay Island, Sarasota, Florida Known as the "Gateway to Siesta Key", Bay Island is located at the northern most tip of Siesta Key and separated from Siesta only by canals. Yet it is it's own island and has a distinct feel. As soon as one crosses the north bridge on Siesta Drive to Siesta Key, they are on Bay Island. The first right is Norsota Way, with gorgeous homes boasting breath taking views of Sarasota Bay, downtown Sarasota, and the Ringling Causeway.

Bay Island is also home to the locally famous boat racer and Sarasota mortgage broker, Dan Lawrence, as well as other noted celebrities.
