Siesta Beach

In addition to its award-winning 99% white quartz sand, Siesta Beach offers tennis and volleyball courts, a shaded playground, picnic area, and two concession stands for a quick bite or a refreshing drink. Its shallow water near the shoreline and year-round lifeguard protection make Siesta Beach a great beach for the whole family.

Crescent Beach

The most private, non-private beach in town, Crescent Beach was rated the “World’s Finest, Whitest Sand” at the Great International Sand Challenge in 1987 beating more than 30 entrants. At the southern tip of Crescent Beach you’ll find Point of Rocks, an area rich with coral formations and colorful marine life that is perfect for snorkeling or diving.

Turtle Beach

At the south end of Siesta Key, Turtle Beach offers a “sportier” beach experience with its picnic areas, playground, volleyball court and horseshoe pit. Turtle Beach has a boat launch area and fishing is permitted in the adjacent Blind Pass Lagoon. Turtle Beach is a narrow beach with a steeper incline and darker sand that carries more shells.

Getting Around

It’s easy to navigate Siesta Key’s 3.5 square miles.

Our three beach areas, Siesta Beach, Crescent Beach and Turtle Beach, and two Villages are easily accessed by using our main north, south road.

Because of its compact size and low speed limit, Siesta Key can be explored by bicycle, golf cart or scooter car – all of which can be rented by the hour, day or week.

The free, open-air Siesta Islander trolley is the leisurely way to travel between Siesta Key Village and Turtle Beach.
