What more can I say. No burning feet. Water is refreshing. Great for small children. The pelicans add some fun bird watching as they dive for fish.

Our first day at Siesta Key was perfect. We enjoyed the "flour" sand for our feet and for our kids to play in. The public access was clean, beautiful, and easy to access with a short walk to a wide beach. We went early 930-12....More

Our apartment was only 300 yards from the private beach of Siesta beach. A lovely clean sandy beach very popular with families. We walked the beach everyday down to Sarasota and it was simply great. Everything so clean and a super sea for bathing.

This is the beach to goto. Super fine Power white sand that stays cool. Lots of various shells to collect. Lots of activities in the area of your staying nearby.

Really like the depth of this beach with the white, fine sugary sand. The beach is so expansive that it is quiet and serene.

Siesta Key Beach is literally the best beach in America. The sand is perfect, the people are super friendly, the parking is close, and the food is great.

We found Siesta Key a couple of years ago, and now it’s a yearly, must visit destination. Most days, as long as your there early enough, say by 11-12, parking is a breeze and there’s plenty of chairs and umbrellas to rent, obviously the earlier...More

It is the best, best in the US. Look no further. It is wide. The sand is like baby powder. Parking is reasonable (ok, it is free right now but there is talk of charging minimally for it). Clean, new bathrooms. Decent food, relatively cheap....More

Loving everything about this beach. White and soft sand. Cool and clear water. So nice to stroll along the beach. Just one thing about parking place. We spent more than 1.5 hours to park but it was worthy.

There is parking at the beach. Get there early for a spot. You can get lunch and drinks at the concession stand there. You can also shower off in the bathrooms before you leave.
