About
As the name suggests, Siesta Beach is a great spot for a lazy and relaxing day in the sun. Lay on its cool, white, and powdery sand, or take a dip in the crystal clear waters. The kids will love collecting the beautifully shaped shells, too. And don't about the kids—there are lifeguards on duty. While there aren't many beachside food options, you can head to the nearby cafes and oyster bars. Get a beachfront condo to make the most of your stay, or visit for the awesome sunset views on an e-bike tour of Siesta Key. There's even a Siesta Beach drum circle on some days. – Tripadvisor

We had a fantastic beach day @ Siesta Beach. We're actually staying in Tampa for vacay but drove down to experience America's #1 beach. Shout out to Boucher Bros. beach rentals for their excellent service as we didn't have any chairs/umbrella (right on the beach). If you are in Orlando or Tampa and want a really pretty beach to lounge around at, Siesta is the spot!

This beach has the softest sand of any beach in the world and we have covered a lot of the world. The beach is hundreds of yards wide and 3 miles long. If you like shells there are lots of them either direction from the public beach. Surf is variable from none at all to some waves that people surf, but it is not a surfing beach. The concessions are good and pretty efficient. During peak spring break times the parking lot will fill up before noon. A great place to watch sunsets.

Rafael and Edward were super friendly and helped set me up with a cabana. If you're not from FL and aren't used to the sun down here, you definitely need shade. Worth every penny to not get a sunburn. Highly recommend renting from Boucher Brothers.

I personally prefer this beach of Clearwater. It is smaller, quieter, and less chaotic. We brought our own chairs and had our pick of where to sit up and down the entirety of the beach. You REALLY need to pay attention to the weather for Red Tide reports. Even moderate Red Tide is enough to get you coughing and miserable. We heard many people mistaking the smell of dead fish of being the Red Tide. The Red Tide kills the fish. You're coughing from the Red Tide when the winds blow off the Gulf. Watch for winds blowing off-shore for the ideal conditions.

The Red Tide is all up and down the SunCoast. Pick your days and locations carefully. If you're looking for tons of bars and restaurants and crowds...go to Clearwater. If you're looking for nice beach to spend a peaceful day ( you're mileage may vary during Spring Break) then check out Siesta Key Beach.

Warning .....check for "Red Tide" season. Plenty of things to do and lots of places to eat. Sunsets are wonderful.

All the lodging was over priced & hard 2 come by. The seafood restaurants were good & reasonable. Gas prices for the affordable car rental were great.
