Awesome beach

A must see. Try to hit beach access # 5 if hunting for shells. We've found more shells off of a sandbar there than other locations.

Siesta Key has stolen our hearts! What a fun, family-friendly beach vacation. The kids love it here, mom and dad do too ;)! The sunsets are incredible. Stay near the village and no car needed. Walk to EVERYTHING. Amazing restaurants, bars and shops.

Baby powder soft Sand . Crystal clear water. Great wading, swimming, walking, sunning, reading, relaxing . Nice Village. Friendly people. Try the free transportation which only collects tip money. Sarasota offers Ringling Brothers, shopping, cultural events. The Dali Museum in St Petersberg is worth the trip. Returning some day 🌞

My family and I come here for a day during spring break each year. The sand is very fine and white, and the water is pure teal. It's its own little paradise. It does get very crowded during the spring break weeks and parking is a nightmare, but overall it is a beautiful beach with lots of activities to enjoy.

Siesta Key is a wonderful place to vacation. The white, sandy beaches provide a beautiful carpet to enjoy the aquamarine water. The sand remains cool and is truly like soft powder. The restaurants and stores offer a variety of choices to please most every taste. The casual atmosphere allows you to fully relax and forget all the stresses of life.... More
