There's nothing wrong with the beach...it is gorgeous. But Siesta Key isn't going to get you away from crowds or congestion, and the parking in Siesta Key Village is pretty poor. We enjoyed our stay but this isn't the kind of beach location that we...More

People reviewing Siesta Key beach in the last few days may not have been there this week. I was shocked yesterday, August 9. There is terrible red tide. No one should be (nor was anyone) swimming in that unsafe water. The water is brown and...More

The powder sand was so soft and cool. Neither child complained about the sand being hot nor that it hurt their feet and legs. Digging in the sand kept my 3 year old entertained for two hours. It’s a little freak from the parking lot...More
