Our hotel was right on Crescent Beach. It is just fabulous. Warm clear water, and COOL sand-- even on 90 degree days. People are on the beach from sunrise to sunset! It is not crowded, but well loved. We are returning with our grown kids for Christmas. Stupendous!

We highly recommend Siesta Key Beach, bring your lunch and sit in front of the marvelous beach. The beach is like a swimimg pool años The water is nice and warm

This is a very nice beach, but locals are parking in the hotel spots and bussing in and using the private beach instead of the public Siesta Key Beach. It used to be so quaint and quiet...

I have been coming here for 32 years, first as a child, then as a newlywed and then as a parent. And we still love coming here every bit as much now. I have traveled the world but still think this beach is one of the top beaches in the world. Crystal white sand that is great for a morning... More

We have been here maybe 15 times over the last 40 years. One of the best in the world - matches up with Hawaii and French Rieviera. I would recommend staying either at the very South or very North ends. Great views, less crowded and easy access to restaurants and groceries and ice cream.

In my opinion Crescent Beach on Siesta Key is the most beautiful beach in the world with its soft white sand and beautiful blue water. We walked the beach every day that we were there and never got tired of it. In spite of the crowds of people it's relaxing and inspirational.

Our hotel was just a walking distance from it so it was very convenient since it was a private beach there was no lifeguard, but the sand was just like Siesta key beach, powder white.
