Best Beaches in Siesta Key

May 30, 2008
Siesta Key beaches are among the finest in the world, and we have plenty of awards to prove it. The beach extends along the entire Gulf Coast of the key, but it is really three distinct areas, each with its own characteristic charm.Relaxing and enjoying the peace and solitude of the area seems to be the favorite pastime for guests, but other activities are available.

Crescent Beach

Crescent Beach offers the same lush, white sands, azure waters, and stunning sunsets, but it is relatively secluded and quiet, as it has only one public access road. Most resorts have private beaches beyond the public beach area and the water's edge. Visitors staying in the resorts, apartments and beach clubs here enjoy a quieter beach experience. At the southern tip of this beach is the Point of Rocks - a lovely snorkeling and diving area that is rich with coral rock formations as well as colorful and abundant marine life. So, if a quieter beach experience is what you may be after, then Crescent Beach is where you want to go.

Siesta Public Beach

Siesta Public Beach is the northernmost beach area. Shallow water depth in the near shore area together with year round lifeguard protection, makes this one of the safest beaches in the County and great for small children. The Public Beach has a shaded picnic area, playground, pavilion, tennis courts and beach volleyball courts.

Siesta Public Beach is renowned for its breath-taking sunsets, easy-going waves, and gorgeous, crystal-white sand. At the "Great International White Sand Beach Challenge" held in 1987, it was recognized as having the "whitest and finest sand in the world." There's always something to do at Siesta Public Beach, and it's within easy walking distance of the many shops and restaurants in Siesta Village.

Turtle Beach

Turtle Beach, south of Crescent Beach, offers an entirely different experience. Located right on the beach there is a playground, picnic areas, a horseshoe pit and boat launching ramp. Turtle Beach provides a sportier, "family friendly" beach experience. The sand on the beach tends to carry more shells, making it perfect for beach combers and shell collectors.

No matter which of our gorgeous beaches you choose to visit, your time will be memorable. Enjoy Florida the way it used to be - unspoiled beaches, abundant wildlife, and beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Visitors can find ample accommodations close to the area that suits them best, but you can easily visit and enjoy all three.
