The barrier island of Siesta Key is just one hour south of Tampa on Florida’s Gulf Coast and off shore from “Florida’s Cultural Center” the city of Sarasota.

Featuring America’s #1 ranked Siesta Beach, Siesta Key is an eight mile barrier island graced with two other beaches and the finest whitest sand on the Planet!

Yes! In 1987, Siesta Key won the International Sand Contest... AND
In case you missed it... That means Siesta’s sand is the best in the entire WORLD! Even when the Travel Channel aired "The Best Beaches in America" Siesta Key was extolled for having the "World’s Finest Whitest Sand".

If planning to visit Siesta Key in November, you’ll probably discover some very major sand formations. That’s when World-Class... Sand Sculpture Artists gather on Siesta Beach to compete at the Siesta Key Sand Sculpting Competition. And, if you think you have talent, test your skills at the Amateur Competition in May. The Travel Channel has been featuring this contest since 1972.

Alive with tropical atmosphere, Siesta Key is filled with "charming hideaways", from cozy, beach cottages to posh condominium complexes featuring every amenity imaginable with options for every budget. Of course, no matter where you stay, be it Siesta Beach, Crescent Beach, or Turtle Beach, the sand is only a stroll away.

Natural settings with peace and solitude can be found exclusively on Siesta’s Crescent and Turtle beaches. The horseshoe shoreline of Crescent Beach offers plenty of room to the north and south of Siesta’s Public Beach for that secluded spot for relaxation. Bring your mask and fins to the southern most point of Crescent at Point-of-Rocks, where colorful sea-life cling and gather round rocky limestone formations.

Farther south, almost to the end of the island, is Turtle BeachTurtle Beach. Here, a lagoon, picnic area, boat launch and forested camp ground are separated by a set of sandy dunes protecting an even less populated beach. Walking, collecting shells and surfing are favorite activities.

With miles of canals, lush tropical foliage and spectacular beach and bay views, Siesta Key may even be the perfect place for that permanent/seasonal home.
