Dining & Bar Options

But it’s not just the activities that make Marker 38 a great choice! The location is also a huge draw, with two iconic Sarasota restaurants and bars right on-site. If you’re in the mood for mahi mahi, grilled grouper, or something else entirely, you won’t be disappointed with a mix of Florida and New England seafood favorites at The Point. Or head next door to Spanish Point Tiki Bar to find a laid-back tiki bar vibe with cold drinks, happy hour specials, and live music.

Both Marker 38 rentals and the restaurants are situated right on the water, giving you easy and convenient access to some of the best spots in Sarasota. And with a stunning view of the water, they’re the perfect place to relax after a day out on the water!
