About Siesta Key Public Beach

Siesta Beach is perfect for families

If you happen to be traveling with young children or the elderly safety is of the utmost concern while you’re at the beach. Siesta Beach is one of the few in the Sarasota area that has lifeguards and a beach patrol on duty throughout the year. The water is also shallow near the shore and very calm, making it perfect for children to swim in while supervised. Beach wheelchairs are available for anyone with mobility challenges. The facilities are also well-suited for families, with volleyball courts, restrooms, showers, changing areas, a playground, and picnic tables.

Beautiful pure white sand

The sand at Siesta Beach is beautiful and soft and almost feels like you’re walking barefoot on a luxury carpet. It is made of quartz crystals that are very fine and powdery, and the sand never gets hot to the touch no matter what the weather is. If you happen to enjoy long walks on the beach (pardon the cliché) Siesta Beach is also ideal for it, as the beach is flat and firm and easy to walk on with a pet or stroller.

Plenty of great restaurants and shopping destinations nearby

Siesta Beach also has the benefit of being right next to over 100 restaurants, bars and other shops in Siesta Village. If you’re craving a bite to eat you can grab one at the beach concession stands or simply walk to Siesta Village and dine at any number of amazing restaurants. Cuisine options that you’ll find nearby include Italian, French, American pub grub, seafood, pizzerias, and several spots to get a quick delicious breakfast or brunch. There are also several highly rated ice cream, yogurt and dessert shops nearby to satisfy you or your family’s sweet tooth.
