Here in Sarasota we have very little beach front property that is not filled with condos and private beaches so the closest you can get if you want a real down home laid back beach vibe is Siesta Key Village. The water is not all that close but a mile or less down the road is one of the best... More

We really enjoy strolling the village. There is a great bead shop that can custom-make jewelry for you, and also has great pieces ready-made to buy. They also have a nice farmer's market on Sunday mornings - one table has the BEST gyros for only $5 - we always look for them. There are also several restaurants to explore. A... More

My 26 year old daughter and I come to Siesta Key every year. It's our annual 'girls only' trip. We always have a wonderful time. This beach is the most beautiful and the sand is unmatched. Siesta Key Village has so many different restaurants and shops they you never get bored.

I recently visited Siesta Key. The beach was beautiful. However while shopping on Ocean Blvd (the main street) I need to use the restroom, but none of the shops or the restaurants would let you use the restrooms unless you were a paying customer. Some places were very rude about it too. Siesta Key needs a public restroom.

We kept coming back whether it was for ice cream, shopping or having something to eat. The place was great fun and came to life in the evening.

Not much to do but eat. Shopping is available but expensive and more for souvenirs. Parking is horrible not enough and tons of Tow Away Zones.

Siesta has the smoothest sand of any of the beaches in the Venice, Sarasota, and Bradenton area. Great family environment. We usually just go there to swim or do a little shell hunting. Every well-known FL beach is crowded during tourist season, but Siesta is certainly worth the visit whenever you're in town.
