Create an itinerary including Siesta Beach
Noted for its wide stretch of white sand, Siesta Beach is lapped by the calm Gulf of Mexico waters. Located just minutes from Sarasota, the beach features public restrooms, snack bars, picnic shelters, gazebos, volleyball courts, and showers. The powdery sand never gets too hot for a walk, so you can intersperse your dips in the gentle waves with long walks along the water's edge. Lifeguards patrol the beach all year, every day of the week, making this one of the safest spots for visitors of all ages and swimming abilities. Parking can become a challenge as the day goes on. PutSiesta Beach into our Siesta Key holiday website and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • It's super convenient and I don't have to carry down an umbrella or Cabana myself. Makes the beach stay longer because we are somewhat shaded.

  • We visited this beach multiple times on our vacation. The sand is like sugar. Very soft and fine. The swimming area is large, with many lifeguard stations along the beach. We all loved this beach....  more

  • Tip: Bathrooms are upstairs. Get there early, parking can be tough. This place has bathrooms, a place to wash off feet, a playground & a Counter where you can buy food and both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages upstairs. There is some seating available on the upstairs deck. The beach access is great at this location and has 4 volleyball courts.
  • The staff here like to threaten children with police and make them cry just because they were dancing and having fun. Disgusting.
