I am not a beach person by nature, but this was a beautiful beach! Nice clear water, soft white sand and tame waves. It entertained both the teen and the preschooler. The water was gentle enough that our 4 year could swim without being tethered....More
White sand beach so your feet will stay nice and cool even when Its super hot out. Unless you are staying at a resort right on the beach you are not allowed to hang out and camp out there. You are only allowed to walk...More
Crescent Beach is a small public beach on south end of Siesta Key. It is a short walk from the very small public access to the beach. Less crowded and quieter than the large public beach at Siesta Key.
Been beaching here for decades - it’s like no other. Beautiful white sand, with the consistency of baby powder incredibly fine. The drum roll is especially nice on Sunday evenings at 6PM. Sarasota did a wonderful job remodeling the entire beach pavilion. There’s also a...More
Lots of crowds and lots of very warm water. 86 degrees was way to hot for me when temps are about 100! I wanted just a cold shower. The sand is quartz, so you can walk on it barefoot without feeling as if walking on...More
Best Beach in Florida and one of the world greats. Sand is white and pleasant to walk or jog. The only issue this time is the Red Tide is making some respiratory issues worse. Check before planning your trip

I do not agree with the above. I have been visiting Crescent Beach for years in April & November, walking the length of the beach daily & last couple years have only seen tiny tiny shells on each end. Used to see multiple sand dollars everywhere. Still great beach for kids. Looking for shells is the fun. Also there are water pools where the young kids play with buckets & make sand sculptures even if only the dripped ones. Usually there is someone building an incredible sculpture. Sanibel is popular for shells. I haven't seen shells on Lido or Holmes Beach either which are closest to Crescent. Crowded near 4 or 5 life guard stands.
