Must see · Beach · Park
Noted for its wide stretch of white sand, Siesta Beach is lapped by the calm Gulf of Mexico waters. Located just minutes from Sarasota, the beach features public restrooms, snack bars, picnic shelters, gazebos, volleyball courts, and showers. The powdery sand never gets too hot for a walk, so you can intersperse your dips in the gentle waves with long walks along the water's edge. Lifeguards patrol the beach all year, every day of the week, making this one of the safest spots for visitors of all ages and swimming abilities. Parking can become a challenge as the day goes on. PutSiesta Beach into our Siesta Key holiday website and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • This is a very popular crowded beach. We spent the day here. There are bathrooms and a concession stand. The sand is white and powdery.  more »
  • I have never found a beach I like more. The white powdery sand feels good under my feet and makes me smile when it comes home on my towel and shoes.  more »
