If you like long wide soft sand beaches, this is the beach for you. The sand is mixed with crystal and there is lots of it in this 7 mile beach, free parking, a playscape for the kids, showers to rinse off the sand with and beautiful blue green clear water. Not to mention the sandbars. The water can vary... More

The beach is clean bright white and powdery sand. This September trip included very few other visitors along the beach. It felt very private. Water was clear and calm. Beautiful!

My boyfriend and I rode bike to the beach and the water was refreshing and low tide. We are frm Miami and the waves here are usually powerful and high and you constantly have to be jumping. Most noticeable aspect about this beach is the white sand.

Amazing beach, you'll never want to leave! White sand feels like powdered sugar, it's wonderful. Everyone comes to watch sunset and take pictures every night. And we got to see dolphins and manatees, wow!:)

Beautiful beach except red tide came in while we were there. I did get great shells though but the washed up fish smelled and was off putting. But the sand is white and not hot to walk on. We did walk the beach for miles laughing the entire say. Warmest ocean water I've ever been in.

Beach was nice. It is located at the end of Siesta beach. If you are looking to find good shells, this is the location for that.

Crescent Beach is a hidden gem from the highly notable Siesta Key. Most of Crescent Beach is private to condominium owners so beware! However, anyone can walk along the wonderful stretch of paradise and shell along the way.

This is a pretty stretch of beach. Unfortunately we arrived just a few days after a tropical storm had passed through and the water was not as clear as it could have been. I'd love to come back some day and visit again.

Don't need to say much else...this was our honeymoon and we couldn't have picked a better spot. This beach is amazing. Gorgeous sunsets...even watched Dolphins swim through one day when we were in the water. We can't wait to get back!

I traveled to Siesta Key 3 years in a row staying on Crescent Beach and Turtle Beach.. I think I prefer the more secluded small Turtle Beach and then venturing over to Crescent Beach where all the young Spring Breakers and their families stay. Crescent Beach is just how it sounds, it's a giant crescent shaped beach with condos all... More
