I just returned yesterday from a 10 day visit to Siesta Key (Municipal) Beach. I've been going there for many years and each year I return I feel like a kid again. The sand is a spectacular fine white powder and so white it's cool to the feet even on the hottest sunny days. And the 40 acre stretch at the municipal beach is the softest, cleanest (because this stretch of the beach is raked overnight each day) part of the key
But there's more to it. Siesta Beach is the only beach on the key with professional lifeguards watching over everyone, especially so that they stay safe. It has a pavilion with food and rest rooms, and lots of sand volleyball courts. Just off the beach in the park are lots of picnic tables and grills, a ball field, tennis courts and a playground.
There are accommodations (condos, town homes) for rent all around the beach. Weekdays parking is easy. Weekends, it's harder so get their by 10:30 am to have a shot at beach parking, otherwise you park a block or two away.
