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!!

Over priced everywhere we went, service was slow and rude at restaurants, and nothing to do, we moved on to clear water now that was sooooo nice and fun..

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

We visited Siesta Key Village during our recent trip to Sarasota. Siesta Key Village is a quaint Florida coastal village with its main strip consisting mainly of restaurants and bars. The main attraction at Siesta Key is the beach and by all reports, it is the best beach in the States. The beach is flat, the sand like flour and... More

We've been coming to Siesta Key for almost 18 years. It's a great little village and the sand on the beach is the best anywhere. Great places to eat and for nightlife. Old Florida charm without big crowds.

I didn't stay in the village too long. I spent most of my time roaming the public beach, just west. When I pulled up about 10AM and talked with the visitor bureau rep, she indicated I would be towed if I kept my car in the main village lot. So I moved it 2 streets to the east and parked... More
