Beautiful white sandy beach. Right near Siesta Village. You can pop to the local bar for a Margarita. Then back to the beach to watch the sunset. Great for kids, fishing and ball games. Sea is so calm. We actually saw a pod of manatees...More

We are used to going to New Smyrna Beach, on the Atlantic Ocean side of the state. This beach looked nice. The Gulf has much calmer water/waves. There was pretty good parking places, but the whole area is very busy and congested. I can't imagine...More

No shops on the beach, you have to take a ride or walk into the village for that. There you will find a supermarket, restaurants, bars and the night life. The beach is gorgeous and perfect for a day with the family.

Big Water Fish Market and The Cottage were my favorites! Go for fish for lunch at Big Water Fish Market and dinner at the Cottage. On Friday nights The Cottage has a guitar duo on the back patio that's very enjoyable.
