Even though we stay on Lido Key for vacation every year we always have to come to Siesta for one day to experience the best sand in the USA! This beach is huge and great for walking or riding bikes. Nice public restroom facilities and ample parking .

There is a lot of beach front that you can walk along, all public and not sectioned off for hotels. The beach front itself is huge and many people exercise here in... More

Started the day with Yoga with Ava on the beach and wow it was perfect. The sand is so soft just like baby powder and cool to the touch no matter how hot the day. If you are in the area do not miss this gorgeous beach!

What more can I say? If your plans call for sun and relaxation head for Sarasota. The beach is beautiful and so are the people.

Stayed in a bungalow right on the sand. Water is pristine and calm and the sand is soft and lean as could be

Unfortunately, the day we visited was a little cool for swimming, so i just rested on the beach. There were a couple in our group that still played in the water. The white sand is very soft. There are lifeguards. There's a snack shack and restrooms. There are also volleyball nets and playground equipment. You can also park for free.... More

We were here with friends in late November. Weather was GREAT! White powder sand, amazing view, water was cool, but not too bad. Stayed in beach gear on the sand for several hours just relaxing, watching the ocean and sunset.
