Located approximately 55 miles south of Tampa on Florida’s Gulf Coast, Siesta Key is an eight-mile-long barrier island connected to Sarasota by two bridges. Founded in 1846, this sleepy little Island sure has a lot going on!
While all the conveniences of modern life are easily accessible, Siesta Key is still remote enough to give one a feeling of old Florida. Bursting with lush foliage, mature trees and tropical flowering shrubs line the winding routes to the village and the beaches. The beaches are refreshingly natural, with protected wild sea oats and mangroves providing a protective habitat for the scores of native island birds that share the island, as well as the dolphins, manatees and other aquatic wildlife living just offshore. In 1987, Siesta Beach was judged “the World’s Finest and Whitest” beach. Made from 99% pure quartz, the beach sand is soft, floury and cool to the touch. In 2011 and in 2017, Dr. Beach named Siesta Key as his number beach in the world, bringing much notoriety to the area.
It is a favorite among people from all over the world. The beach facilities include picnic areas, restrooms, concession stands, playground, trails, and tennis and volleyball courts. The nightlife on Siesta Key is great- the laid-back Siesta Village offers a wide variety of restaurants and bars, boutiques, and surf shops. Fine dining and dance clubs can also be found on this great Sarasota barrier Island.
