Great beach with beautiful white Quartz sand, that doesn't heat up in the hot sun. Bring your sunscreen creme, a towel some cool drinks and just drop somewhere. When your with friends you can play beach volleyball at one of the 5plus areas. The gorgeous the beach is, the lousy is it's attached "restaurant" Skip that one except for the... More

I agree this is a beautiful white sand beach, good public access, restroom and changing facilities. Though the beach area is wide I imagine during peak times it can get crowded. This beach used to be a well kept secret but now the traffic across the causeway is crazy, there are 2 driving access points over from Sarasota and even... More

The beach is absolutely beautiful. Wide beach with powdery white Caribbean type sand. If you are going in the "winter" months, don't expect Caribbean warm waters of course. The water will be chilly. However, it's a beautiful place to spend a day. Parking can be an absolute Beast though as this place gets quite busy.

The reviews didn't disappoint - this is a super beach. Huge - volleyball nets - beach chairs for rent - cool little snack shack - water toys for rent - parking - and a great playground. Pretty much something for everyone!

Absolutely spectacular beach, there is a reason it has been rated #1 in the USA. Nice very wide beach area, playground, restrooms, volleyball, cafe. Traffic gets tough on the weekends.

There's a reason why they say best beach in US. Wide and white. Nice walking beach and sunbathing. Lots of people but never get that crowded feeling where we were. Not sure what the public beach is like - we stayed south of that.

My husband and I spent a morning and early afternoon walking along siesta key beach back in December. It was a lovely day. The beach was not too crowded in the morning so we were able to find a space in the parking lot to park and we enjoyed our walk. The sand is cool and powdery. Some of the... More

White sand that's like baby powder on your feet. Great access points with free parking along the entire beach. Gets crowded early but by late afternoon it's not difficult to get a spot. Outdoor showers to wash off with.

Siesta Key public beach is a gorgeous beach with soft white sand- just like flour. We went in February and spent all five days on the beach. The beach pavilion offers a couple of outdoor showers for rinsing off. Clean bathrooms, a concessions stand with food like pizza, chili dogs, beer, wine, and frozen daiquiris. You can also rent beach... More

Siesta is a great beach. It is wider than any beach I have visited in the United States or in the Caribbean, We found it to be laid back, great for families and couples. We had an opportunity to to see the "drum circle" on Sunday afternoon and that was lot of fun. Looking forward to visiting Siesta Key again... More
