Great white sand beach. The beach was soft. The kids loved picking up sea shells. The ocean floor was sandy and was not rocky like other breaches I have been to.

Met friends for a few days of R&R. I've been told what a beautiful place this is but you have to experience it yourself. Lots to do and see along with possibly the most beautiful beach I've ever been to......

The cleanest, softest, whitest sand I've ever seen. Best part is the sand stays cool even on the hottest days!

This stretch of coast has the softest whitest sand you will find. The water was warm and the water sports plentiful.

Siesta Beach is number 1 in Florida, as of this writing, for a reason! Sand is white as sugar, and water is a beautiful blue, and so warm that there was no need to walk in slowly like at some areas. The beach was clean,...More

If you park at Siesta Beach is it possible to walk between Siesta Beach, Crescent Beach, and Turtle Beach? Or do you need to drive to each one and park? I want to see all 3 beaches. If you can walk how long does it take?

It is quite a distance between beaches. You'd have to be in great shape to walk all the way! I couldn't even guess how long it would take to walk it, but on a good day, the drive from Siesta to turtle is 10-15 min depending... More
