We took a trip from Anna Maria Island to see what all the hype was about at the Siesta Key Beach. We tried to access the surrounding beaches to avoid the LONG trek down to the water's edge but we had ZERO luck finding parking. We had hoped to find a place to park & access Crescent Beach & snorkel around Point of Rocks but we wasted a lot of time trying to find a parking spot in a very residential and private area. We ended up at the main parking area for Siesta Key and braved the long walk across the sand.

Thankfully the sand is NOT hot! The sun WAS and it was exhausting just to get to a spot near the water. Aside from that long trek (which I ended up having to do even more to take my children to the restrooms near the parking area) it was incredibly crowded. We only had about 4 ft. in-between us and the people surround us. Maybe some people are used to that type of beach setting but we aren't and we definitely didn't like it. The water felt crowded too. Felt like you were always about to bump into someone. The waves were also fairly rough compared to many other beaches we had visited.

Positives - gorgeous white sand, beautiful tropical water.
IMO you can find that same vibe at many of the other beaches nearby without dealing with the massive, tiring trek across the beach and the heavy crowds. One beach we found to be comparable in appearance but MUCH more secluded was Bean Point at the tip of Anna Maria Island. Another we really enjoyed was Cortez Beach in Bradenton.

The ambiance was relaxed and chill. We didn’t have to bother with carrying chairs and umbrellas because they rent them there! Lifeguards are on duty always. The sand is so powdery soft amazing!

Will was friendly and helpful. Luckily we were able to get chairs and umbrella that were already set up. The beach is beautiful. Water is warm and is soft.

My friends family and I had a great experience with Boucher Brothers! William was so helpful and accommodating. We arrived to the beach a little later than expected and he provided us with a great deal since they would be closing soon. He also brought and setup all of the equipment, making it super easy to get cool and comfortable quick! Overall 10/10 experience- will definitely be utilizing this company every time we visit! Thanks again William and Boucher Brothers!

It was 90+ degrees so we were very happy William from Boucher Brother set up the umbrella at a perfect angle so we had plenty of shade.
