Siesta Key, Florida: Island Beaches and Sun

Siesta Key, Florida, is a beautiful barrier island on the Gulf coast of Florida. White sand beaches, eight miles of ocean views and outdoor leisure activities define the vacation experience when you choose Siesta Key. Your vacation house, condo or villa can include air conditioning, internet access and satellite or cable TV for your comfort during your stay.

White Sand Beaches

Siesta Public Beach has been referred to as one of the United States’ best beaches due to its glorious white sands. The sands are made of quartz and are the pride of Siesta Key. You can beach comb for shells or just enjoy the feel of the white sand on your toes. Palm trees and exotic flowers dot the beaches with wild dolphins and manatees swimming in the surf. Wild parrots and pelicans frolic on the beach, and the turquoise ocean waters make this a beach paradise you will not soon forget.

Siesta Key Sand Sculpture Contest

Early May brings the annual Siesta Key Sand Sculpture Contest, where the beautiful white sands are shaped into amazing sculptures by world-class artists. The sands are said to have magical healing powers and have been rated among the best sands in the world for their beauty. This event is not to be missed when you are vacationing in the area with the mystical, unique sands taking shape in temporary, wondrous ways.

Dining and Shopping

Siesta Key offers many fine dining opportunities with seafood being a primary focus. More than a dozen restaurants are available with casual dining to include the entire family and romantic, sit-down meals for two. Shopping on Siesta Key includes clothing and boat rentals. For additional dining and shopping options, Sarasota is just a short eight miles away with a wide variety of urban shops and gourmet foods.

Siesta Key Village

Siesta Key Village is a shopping center in Sarasota with over 100 boutiques and cafes. This shopping destination also hosts events such as the Siesta Fiesta and art shows. This is a wonderful place to walk, shop and stop for a casual meal while soaking in the culture and beauty of Florida among the palm trees.

Outdoor Sports

The Florida South Central Gulf Coast is home to many outdoor sports, including fishing, sailboarding and snorkeling. Chartered boats are available for deep-sea fishing or a pleasure cruise. Multiple beaches along Siesta Key offer access to the beaches and ample parking. Along the interior of the barrier island are many miles of canals and waterways for kayaking, fishing and boating.

Weather

Siesta Key’s weather is generally sunny and warm during all times of the year. Warm Gulf breezes keep the island cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Temperatures typically are in the balmy 70s, but the humidity can make it feel warmer. There is always the possibility of a cold snap in the winter or higher heat in the summer; travelers should prepare for this possibility. When the weather is stormy, the winds can pick up which makes the temperatures feel colder.

Cheryl provides everything you need for a fun day at the beach...the beach wagon is a lifesaver. Thanks Cheryl for providing a great spot to relax and enjoy the charms of Siesta Key!

                                                              This villa was more than we could have imagined. It suited our needs perfectly. Cheryl is such a kind and gracious host. The villa had everything we needed for a relaxing beach vacation. The pool was so nice and refreshing after being out in the sun. The decor of the villa was modern and beachy. We loved it and didn't want to leave! We will be back soon for sure!
