Siesta Key Beach

HomeArea GuideBeachesSiesta Key Beach

A Florida vacation should be filled with sunny days, unexpected storms that flit across the landscape and disappear as quickly as they appeared, and long, carefree days spent at the beaches that speak to the souls of all who experience them. And a Florida beach day somehow shines brighter when spent on the brilliant white sand beaches of Siesta Key, with Siesta Key Beach being the star of this show. There are other beaches in the world that advertise white sands, but they pale in comparison to this sweet spot. The sands were created from tiny granules of Appalachian quartz that eroded over thousands of years into a fine powder that never loses its shine. We at RentTheKeys have long been a fan of this sandy paradise, and because we want our guests to have vacations they will never forget, we have created this guide to the joys of a day at our own stunningly beautiful Siesta Key Beach!

You May Want to Pinch Yourself on Siesta Key Beach

As you arrive at Siesta Beach, the beautiful seascape that spreads out before you may make you pinch yourself to determine if it is all real. Glaringly white sands, surreal turquoise waters, and a backdrop of verdant green and sleek structures create a postcard-perfect scene that will instantly burrow its way into your heart. Dotted with colorful umbrellas, towels, and tanned sun worshippers, the occasional swooping and cawing of sea birds, and with the sun shining brightly overhead, this moment in time deserves to be captured with photographs, and many families do just that, planning family photographs against white sands and sea oats! Siesta Beach, one of three on Siesta Key, is perhaps the most well-rounded beach of all three, providing two concession stands for snacks and beverages, a bright red lifeguard stand that provides year-round safety for swimmers who don’t often understand the fierceness of Gulf waters, and multiple ways to play without stepping into the sea. You may expect volleyball courts, of course, for the ultimate in beach experiences, but tennis courts, a shaded picnic area, and a playground for your beach babies will make this day absolutely perfect. Also offering beach wheelchairs for rent, this beach promises a great time for everyone, no matter what your ability levels are! On Sundays at sunset, Siesta Beach is home to a famous Drum Circle, costing nothing to get involved, and involving music, dancing, and a round of applause for Mother Nature’s most spectacular show, the setting of the sun!
