We travel a lot to the Southwest Florida Gulf Beaches and many of them you have to pay to park. Siesta Key has a huge parking area and there are no fees. Nice white sand, excellent changing area, and plenty of space. Great Beach!

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.
