One of the best beaches - truly!

Have been visiting this beach for about 10 years and each time it never disappoints. The sand is like power, the beach clean and the sunsets glorious.

On Siesta Key but hard to get to unless you are staying here since no parking like other beaches. Nice sand, private feeling for couples or families wanting to be away from loud obnoxious people.

Calm, family friendly. My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary sans children. Sand was soft and clean. We plan on going back and bringing the whole family!

Limited public parking. If you are staying in one of the condos it is your go to beach. Beautiful white sand, aqua water NOTE: no concessions. There is restaurants across the street and a grocery store within easy walking distance

The beach is great for families. The sand is white, you can search for sea shells and the water on most days is clear and calm. A few of the days we were there, the storms had churned up the water a little, making it a bit wavy and full of seaweed. Still a wonderful beach on the Gulf Coast.

Crescent Beach is beautiful. It is very small so it can get crowded but the water is so clear and clean you really don't care. We loved it.

The sand here is always cool and feels powdery, almost like flour. It feels so awesome! The water is clear and beautiful. There are lots of sandbars so it is easy to swim and wade in. On two different occasions a manatee swam right by my husband and I! Fun place to hunt seashells as well. Best beach I've ever... More

Already rated as one of the finest beaches in North America, this beach is about 4 miles long, 100 yards wide, and is made of white powdered sand. The water just off the beach is quite shallow so it's good for wading.

Great beach! Hard to find parking, but after talking to a local we were able to secure a spot and had a great time there.

Stayed in a condo on the beach... sand is as soft as flour, water is clear and turquoise. Prettiest beach I have ever seen. Enjoyed the change of tide. The only complaint I can think of were the occasional disgusting cigarette butts littering the beach. Ugh.
