This is easily the best beach we have found anywhere, and we have shopped all over. It is bright white, powdery sand that stays cool. They groom it so that it is clean all the time. There are bathroom facilities onsite as well as food vendors. Very nice handy parking is available. Certainly a destination we will find again.

What can I say about this beach that hasn't already been said. The water is a beautiful blue and incredibly clear. The white sand is so fine it reminds you of baby powder. I love the walkway mat that helps with carrying lots of items and is easy on the feet. It is an absolutely beautiful beach and I can't... More

This is Monday March 27, 2017. We are getting close to packing up our winter cottage in Lakeland and heading back home in Ontario and decided to spend a day at a beach and soak up the sun and surf. Everything looked to be perfect. HOWEVER. We never go to relax on the sand and enjoy the surroundings due to... More

I spent two days on this beach with friends last week and I was very impressed. The quartz sand is as fine as flour and stays cool even at midday. The water is warm enough to swim in March and one can easily spend all day in the water without getting cold. The slope is gentle and makes for safe... More

Besides the fact that when we arrived there were very few places to park, after about 15 minutes we found one. We immediately scoped out the area for the snack bar. We found it, but to our dismay they had been busy all day and there was not much to order. The beach was GORGEOUS with powder white sand and... More

Went to Siesta Key Paviolion on a Sunday afternoon in March. I'm not reviewing the beach but only parking near it! After spending 40 minutes going up and down parking aisles, we decided it was fruitless to contnue, and ended up leaving and just going to a restaurant north of the main beach area!!

Siesta Beach is easily the most beautiful beach we've ever been to. The sand is so fine; it's like walking in powder. Plenty of space for the many guests. Get there early to get a parking space!

The beach itself is so beautiful with the white sand and pretty water. We love the fact there are NO waves on the Gulf but if you like to surf or play in the waves then go to the East coast of Florida. BUT, a big negative is how crowded and popular it has become. If you are not there... More

Point of Rocks (beach access #13) is totally worth it if you like tide pooling. We found lot of conch, clams and a few crabs. Parking is TERRIBLE though. For an uncrowded, relaxing beach we'd suggest access point #7. Can't attest to the parking there since our house rental was 1.5 blocks from that point, so we walked. The main... More

This beach was so extremely crowed, we couldn't even get in. We circled forever to find a parking spot. I can only imagine what the actual beach looked like based on the lot and the amount of people standing around.
