Siesta Key has long been known as one of the best places to go to the beach in the world – in fact, it received the “Best Beach in the US” award from Dr. Beach in 2011. This award looked at a variety of criteria, including: beach width, material, softness and condition of sand, water temperature, number of waves, presence of beach wildlife and vegetation, public safety measures, and amenities available.
Spending just a day there will help you realize why it won – the temperatures, on average, stay in the 70’s year round, and the beach features fine white quartz sand which is both soft and cool to the touch. Also located on Siesta Key is Turtle Beach, which provides boat access ramps, horseshoe courts, and a volleyball court to play on for guests. With a vacation rental in Siesta Key, you’ll be staying right in the midst of the one of the world’s best beaches.
A long day on either Siesta Key Beach or Turtle Beach can work up an appetite, and there are many quality restaurants on the island to visit. For example, the Village Café offers a variety of lunch and breakfast options. Daiquiri Deck Raw Bar is famous for not only its unique seafood menu and classic burgers, but also its frozen daiquiris – it turns into a bar at night with music. For a fancier experience, you can visit Javier’s Restaurant and Wine Bar, with tapas, American favorites, and other different cuisines. Beyond these, there are many other restaurants to choose from – ask a local about any hidden hot spots you may miss!
