I have been here twice. Most recent was March 2017, the height of spring break season, and also late April of 2013. The difference was amazing as far a crowds. The beach is phenomenal: sugary, cool sand and aqua water. It was worth fighting the crowds in March. We arrived around 11 and found parking at the main lot. When... More

We've been coming to this beach for over 20 years and keep coming back. The sand is like white flour and so soft to walk in. Good for shelling and taking long walks and of course the evening spectacular sunset. Love Siesta Key Beach!

Siesta beach has earned best beach for several years now, and it is well-deserved. We were at multiple beaches while we were in Florida for this trip, and this was by far the most beautiful! Be sure to add it to your bucket list if you are traveling to Florida.

Love the powdery soft sand that seems to stay cool even when the day gets hotter. The tough thing about this beach is that there is not enough parking for everyone who wants to come. People just had to keep circling the parking lot for a spot. I suppose that is good crowd control. The beach patrol were keeping things... More

Best sunset viewing is near the sailboat masts parked on the North end of the public beach, near Beach Access paths 7, 8, and 9. From the public beach pavilion (and parking lot) on Siesta Key, walk North approximately one mile to find a quiet spot just past the sailboat parking area... If you park at Beach Access Lots 6,...
