Not exactly sure what is going on with the Siesta Key Beach much to my dismay!! The water has been cloudy, there have been dead fish and debris that has washed ashore. Depending on which way the wind is blowing, some days I have an evening coughing issue. (Algae Bloom off the water toward the beach) One day, where the... More

My favorite vacation ever. We loved the beach and the calm waters. Our kids are still talking about how amazing Siesta Key was for vacation.

Very white soft sand that felt so good walking on. Spent the day at the beach and felt very safe. Parking is horrible so we took the free shuttle from our hotel. Worked like a charm. We can not wait to get back there next year... Love, Love, Love..

A dreamy place to spend the afternoon! The new concession stand serves a variety and the orange crush is thirst-quenching.

Siesta Beach has been rated the #1 beach in the USA. Though the sand is so soft and the Gulf so serene, the distance to beach from parking or restrooms us quiet long. If you are an adult, you may want to avoid this beach during college spring break recess, It's busy and loud and constantly being controlled by police... More

We live on the Key so: construction at the Beach was completed this week; a short walk between the Village and the Beach. Try the Broken Egg for breakfast, the Lobster Pot for lunch or dinner (try the Bisque). Parking is available in the church parking lot on Midnight Pass, not free but worth it. Temperature mid-70s and mid-50s, low... More

This is best beach with clam water that you really can swim, no rough water! White long sandy beach is excellent to stroll along or rest! There are nice condo and luxurious hotel along but you do not see those too commercial which would have spoilt a quiet beach. Parking can be a problem so walking there if your hotel/motel... More
