With eight beautiful miles of white, powdery sand beneath your toes, award winning seafood at every corner, and endless activities for you and your family; Siesta Key is undoubtedly the ultimate destination to call “Home.”
Once you step foot on the sand, you'll understand why the beach has been rated the #1 beach in America multiple times by several travel outlets including US News & Word Report. Pictures alone don't do it justice. It doesn't suffice to just read an article and imagine your day at the beach. There is a reason thousands of people move to Sarasota each year.
You may be asking yourself what exactly it is that's on this beautiful stretch of land that attracts thousands of people each and every year. For starters, just a few years back Siesta Key Beach expanded their parking lot space to cater to the droves of new residents and out-of-towners. In addition, they added a brand new pavilion with food and beverages. There are several volleyball nets, jet ski rentals, snorkeling, and other activities to do directly on the beach.
That is only just the beginning. Let's dive into the food! Nearby there is award winning seafood to satisfy your cravings. You can enjoy a variety of local tropical drinks to wash it down at one of several nearby bars, as well. A local favorite is Siesta Key Oyster bar (commonly known as SKOB) as well as Owens Fish Camp, Gilligans, and Walt's Fish Market just to name a few. For dessert, especially for the kiddos, there is the very popular Big Olaf Creamery. There certainly is not a shortage of delicious eats along Siesta Key.
The activities, food, and scenery is endless on Siesta. However, if what you're looking for is a day full of relaxation and sun bathing, you're definitely at a perfect destination. While Siesta Key is known for its local activities, it is also known as an incredibly relaxing getaway. Come down and enjoy this magical paradise!
