This is one of my favorite hangouts once the tourists have left. Otherwise, it can get pretty crowded. Ranked #1 by Mr. Beach, it is powdery, soft and amazing. However, bring a sealed bag for your electronics. Sand in THOSE nooks and crannies doesn't wash out.

Parking can be an issue but there is not beach in the US like it. Great for running. No smoking beach. Alcohol allowed but no glass.

White sand, great for long walks, beautiful sunsets, good shelling & everything you need nearby. We stay at Excelsior, the best rental condo on Siesta Key. (believe me, we have checked them ALL out & Excelsior is the leader by far!)

Siesta Key is well planned for the public. Parking is beach side, facilities are readily available and food is available also. The beach itself is lovely. Only downside is that due to it being a public beach there are lots of people here and if you wanted a more secluded time (less noise/activity from other people around you) then you'll need to find options, of which there are many!
