Destination guide

Come and unwind on Siesta Beach

Tread the sands of Siesta Beach and just watch as the green-blue waters of the Mexican Gulf mingle with the alabaster sands of the shore. Hailed by locals as one of the most handsome seaside stretches in North America, this barrier island on the Treasure Coast is a veritable hubbub of life. Jet skiers whiz over the light swells, dolphin pods somersault in the distance, sunbathers make sure the Sunshine State lives up to its rep, and the promenades bubble with concession stands and bars. Siesta Beach vacation rentals are your ticket to it all.

Things to do

Pinpointing the right sunbathing spot on Siesta Beach

It's a trio of beaches that really puts Siesta Key as a whole on the map. They start with Siesta Beach itself, where luxurious Siesta Beach vacation rentals tower over the Gulf waves and bustling restaurants spill onto the shoreline. Then there's emptier Crescent Beach, where the sand is like baking soda and glistens with twinkling quartz stone. Finally comes Turtle Beach in the south, where a cluster of family condos and stylish apartments offers access to the island's most secluded stretch of coast.

Activities

Splashing in the Gulf on Siesta Beach

Fronted by a long run of sand so fine it's like icing sugar, it's hardly a surprise that the main enjoyments here are focused on the coast. Bag yourself one of the sought-after Siesta Beach vacation rentals on the shore to be the first to the sunbathing spots in the morning. When you're done lazing and soaking up the rays, there are bike rentals for scooting up the promenades to Turtle Beach, or watersports outfitters with everything from adrenaline-pumping jet skis to dolphin tours on the menu. Get ready to make a splash.

Weather

It's always going on in Siesta Beach

While the official storm season in Siesta Beach runs through the summer and into September, it's likely you'll catch the powdery white sands still peppered with plenty of tanned bodies at that time. That said, locals often champion October and November as the single best time of year, when you can dodge the highest rates in Siesta Beach vacation rentals, and still get swim-tempting temperatures in the 80s and 90s. The months of March and April are largely given over to revelers, which is perfect if you want to shindig with the Spring Breakers along the shore.

Natural features

Siesta Beach sloshes with seas and sands

Pack the sunnies – Siesta Beach is famed across the globe for its uber-bright sands. Made from ground-up quartz stone, they glow a brilliant hue of cotton-white. Add in the rolling waves of the Mexican Gulf, which caress the shoreline in swells of turquoise green-blue, and it's easy to see why this one's always up there on lists of America's best beaches. Boat trips can take you over the swells to spot dolphins and whales, while excursions inland to Florida's Myakka River State Park mean getting glimpses of moss-clad hammocks and oak forests where pink-hued spoonbills tread.
