Siesta Key, FL - America's #1 Beach

Located approximately 60 miles south of Tampa on Florida's Gulf Coast, Siesta Key is an eight-mile-long barrier island connected to Sarasota by two bridges (north bridge on Siesta Drive and south bridge on Stickney Point Drive). Upon entering the Key, the winding roads to the beaches and to the village are lined with lush greenery, tall palm trees and an abundance of tropical shrubs making for a magical place. The beaches are refreshingly natural and breathtaking with their tall willow grasses, turtle nests and mangroves which provide a safe haven for the area's wildlife.

Founded in 1846, there are now approximately 23,000 full- and part-time residents on the Key. Siesta Key has long been a popular family vacation destination. Boasting warm tropical waters and fresh gulf breezes, Siesta Key offers tourists and locals the perfect mix of warm Florida sunshine and fun outdoor attractions. From walking on the #1 rated Siesta Key Beach to enjoying a tropical drink at one of the village's open-air restaurants, a Siesta Key vacation is the perfect place to get away from life's busy hustle and bustle.

Sands of the Suncoast

When looking at the various beach sands of the Suncoast area, we can easily see that there is quite a variance in color, size and texture. The lightest sand is Siesta Key Beach which is almost pure quartz giving it a snow-like appearance and a cool temperature even on the hottest of Florida's summer days. The nearby beaches of Venice and Lido are darker in color and have a good mixture of sand and crushed shell which are a warmer to the touch on a sunny day.
