Nicest, relaxing, blue water beach I have ever been to. A great place to walk or just sit and relax. And of course great for bathing. My first visit, definitely not my last. Great bars and restaurants in town.

We watched the sunset, took long walks on white sand and found lots of seashells. Not as crowded as Clearwater beach.

This is probably my absolute favorite beach in Siesta Key. Gorgeous clear water. Not the crowds you will find at SK public beach, yet the same beautiful white sand and crystal clear Gulf water. There was a manatee floating peacefully in the water the day that we were there and you could see dolphins in the distance. Absolutely perfect. The... More

This beach sits between Siesta Beach and Turtle Beach. It is small, has beautiful sand and a small beach. The down side is that you can barely find it, and there is no parking. You have to walk a long way to reach it through various homes and condos. No public restroom that we could see. We only stayed a... More

A stunning beach with sand so fine that it "squeaks" beneath your feet. A true must see if you are in Sarasota!

We have been staying at Crescent Beach for over 40 years, from honeymoon to toddlers who are now adults with children that they regularly bring to this special beach. Whenever we go, we settle into the rhythm of the beach, right beyond our door and never want to leave the Key or the beach! The sand is like a fine... More

Small but nice beach with white sand. The red tide affect was not as bad here as it was at Siesta and Turtle beaches. Still people were coughing and some dead fish washing up.

As long as there is no red tide, it is a wonderful place. Brilliantly white, soft sand. Beautiful caribbean water colors. Only drawback - difficult to find public toilets.

We went early in the morning and was a wonderful walk with low tide and found some wonderful small full shells to make jewelry with.
