Siesta Key Beach

948 Beach Road, Siesta Key, Florida 34242 USA

Add to Trip

“Central Sarasota's gateway to the Gulf”

Siesta Key Beach is central Sarasota's gateway to the sparkling waters of the Gulf of Mexico, an island that combines luxurious amenities with a relaxed vibe that appeals to both visitors and locals.

On the east side of this eight-mile long barrier island is Sarasota Bay and Florida's intracoastal waterway. It's a scenic trail for boaters interested in exploring the mangrove forests that dot the area, dropping a line for snook or pompano, or cruising to Sarasota's dockside restaurants and pubs. On the island's west side are Siesta Key's glorious white sand beaches -- ranked number one in America in 2011 by Dr. Beach -- and the calm waters of the Gulf. Take an early morning walk while dipping your toes in the surf; build sand castles, search for shells and soak up the warm sunshine in the afternoon; then find a comfortable spot in to view the postcard-perfect moment when the sun dips below the horizon and paints the sky in strokes of red and orange.

Siesta Beach is no doubt one of the best beaches! Beautiful sea, great light blue crystal colors at the sea's clean water.

The coastline is massive and you can walk with your feet soaking at the waterfront while the sun warms your body straight ahead!!

If you get hungry, just walk 5 minutes to the restaurants located next to the beach like we did!

Next time we visit, no doubt we are booking a room at the beautiful bungalows which are located right on the beach!

This place is just so incredible. The water is crystal clear and the sands are fine. The whole place is clean and well maintained. Perfect for a relaxing walk. I would recommend families to go here for a nice day out. You can bring picnic mats and food baskets with you as you can enjoy a relaxing lunch in front of the magnificent waters.

It is a beautiful beach and one to visit! It is also a trek to cross all the lovely white sand to the water. When we visited it was hard packed sand good for wide wheeled rolling carts or coolers and only near the water did you hit softer sand. Spring break time it is very busy of course but that doesn't mean your experience on the beach itself will suffer. Just be prepared for the long traffic lines across the drawbridge, the expensive food nearby (not fast food), and the debris left behind by all those people. Even though this is a very clean beach you will still find beer bottles, plastic bags, and swifter towels(?!) along the water break. Wildlife nearby and some nice shells to pick up too if that's your thing. 4/5 would go again!

I've been to a lot of beaches in my day, and I've got to say this is still one of the most beautiful I've been to. The white sand is stunning, there's tons of sand which means there's a lot of places to sit even when it gets crowded, and it's especially nice for stargazing.

The most beautiful beach you can find. Consider yourself lucky if you get a chance to see it in person
