Siesta Key Beach, Sarasota, Florida

Siesta Key Beach, Sarasota, Florida

Located on Florida's Gulf Coast, Siesta Key Beach is an ideal spot to spend the day, then watch the sunset. Soft white sand which stays cool under your feet thanks to being comprised of 99% quartz and clear water that's shallow near the shoreline are the hallmarks of Sarasota's Siesta Key Beach. In 2011, Dr. Beach rated Siesta Key Beach the #1 beach in the US and in 2004 the Travel Channel named it the Best Sand Beach in America.

Lifeguards are on duty year-round, making this an ideal family beach. Restaurants and restrooms are a bit of a walk to the beach and there's minimal shade. Pack a beach umbrella, cooler and beach games to maximize your day in the sand. Beaches are not dog-friendly and sea turtle nests are often blocked off to ensure the safety of the hatchlings.
