Siesta Key Beach

Sarasota and her islands

Siesta Key is an eight-mile-long barrier island connected to Sarasota by two bridges. The wide expanse of sand is like fine confectioners sugar, powdery white and soothing to touch. With silken sand, dolphins dancing in the surf and picture-perfect sunsets, it's little wonder this beach generally ranks among the top rated beaches. With so much to see and do, Siesta Key is popular with families, Florida snowbirds and those who love exciting nightlife.
