I've been going to this beach for 50 years now! It is a family destination for our entire extended family from all over the country. The secret is the sand, pure white, never hot on your feet and a long gentle slope to enter the blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Everyone we introduce to this beach ends up... More

We stayed at the sea shell resort. Very nice resort only bad thing is the pool is between buildings so gets very limited sun! However, the units are very nice and clean. But the beaches are the BEST thing here! The sand is like baby powder so soft and feels great on your feet. There are plenty of beach chaises... More

My wife and I visited Sarasota in winter time. We had wonderful time at Siesta Beach. This beach is ideal for vocation but not too many tourists as other famous beach. Will recommend to others and we will come back for sure.

The beach is beautiful..BUT, parking and traffic getting on & off of Siesta Key is a real problem. IF you plan on visiting, be sure to check the red tide situation before you go It can cause respiratory problems.

Simply beautiful soft white sand. Maybe the softest sand I have ever felt. Very crowded but we love to people watch. Nice food pavilion. Public parking lot was full but we were at a peak time. Found a private lot 2 blocks away.

Crescent Beach is a lovely place, at the south end of Siesta Key. The flat sand is ideal for walking, running, bike riding or just relaxing. The sunsets are spectacular and the Drumming Circle on Sundays at the public beach area is not to be missed!

It is undeniable the most beautiful beach we have visited in Florida. The sand was so white and pure and the water was a beautiful teal color and clear. The kids could pick shells right off the Gulf water floor as well as along the expansive beach. The sunsets are amazing. You don't want to leave Florida without stopping at... More

My family has vacationed on this beach for nearly sixty years. I have been on beautiful beaches on four continents. This is the most beautiful beach in the world.
