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.

The area is small but there are plenty of gift shops and bars/restaurants…all within walking distance. There is plenty of live, good music - even on corners and parking lots. We really enjoyed SKOB. Another Broken Egg was good for breakfast. Prices all around were not cheap but they were not over the top considering the touristy location. We (eight... More

Small area of a few shops and restaurants, nothing special. Very cramped together and congested with traffic. Many nearby beach rentals and little hotels. I understand this area becomes a party spot at night with loud music. With all the buildings you cannot even see the beautiful Gulf of Mexico!!

Great family get-away! Low-key, casual and relatively inexpensive. Plenty of activities for families with young children nearby. The beach is one of the most beautiful beaches anywhere in the world....snow-white soft sand, clear water, gentle waves and blue skies! It can also be a totally romantic weekend/week for two...Sarasota which is 10 min away features fantastic restaurants, excellent theatre/cultural activities/sports...etc.

We have been going to the Siesta Key Village every other year for the past 15 years. It has changed a lot from the first time we went. It has gotten a lot more crowded. The beach is one of the best beaches in the United States. I think the little village is having growing pains. There is not enough... More
