Everyone is so laid back and happy to be where anyone else would love to be. Rent a beach bike for all day for $10 and not even a deposit asked for. If that doesn't sum it up, nothing does!

Siesta Key Beach has to be the widest beach anywhere! The sand is like powdered sugar and beautiful. The beach was clean and the tide just rippled onto the shore. Even though we were here for a chilly week in January (50s & 60s), it...More

We visited when the weather was rather gloomy but that didn't stop Siesta Beach from showing off its beauty. I have never walked on sand that felt as soft as this beach. The waves were calm and the sand was precious. I'm definitely planning on...More

If you have ever dreamed of the perfect beach, this is it. Very wide, shallow crystal clear water that you can walk very far out in, and the most amazing sand you have seen. It's really more like powered sugar. Lifeguards on duty and a...More

By far some of the whitest softest sand in Florida. The beach is secluded and serene. I am glad that so few people know about this fabulous little Key.

I think I am falling in love with the Gold Coast. I was there in January and walked long stretches of nearly empty beach, then watched the sun set over a clear blue sky. Birds, shells, soft sand, and clean. Nice

Never been to any beach before on a 100 degree day where the sand was COOL to your feet. Siesta Key was awesome. The sunsets were beyond beautiful and the locals were friendly and helpful.

I love Siesta Key. I couldn't believe how crowded it was during Christmas vacation! I usually go in April. Of course, it has received so much press in the last year or two as being the number one beach in America, I guess the word...More

If you park at Siesta Beach is it possible to walk between Siesta Beach, Crescent Beach, and Turtle Beach? Or do you need to drive to each one and park? I want to see all 3 beaches. If you can walk how long does it take?

It is quite a distance between beaches. You'd have to be in great shape to walk all the way! I couldn't even guess how long it would take to walk it, but on a good day, the drive from Siesta to turtle is 10-15 min depending... More
