Siesta Key Beach is the nicest beach I have ever been to. I have been all over the world and nothing compares.

The white, soft sand is beautiful. My family enjoys spending time on the beach and Siesta Key is our favorite.

The sand was extraordinarily soft and white, the water was warm, and there was a lot of beach. However I really did not enjoy Siesta Key Beach because there were SO MANY PEOPLE. A sea of people. There was no space or privacy to enjoy the beach. It might have been a little worse for me because I went on the first hot day in a few days. If you don't mind a crowd then this is a great beach for you. If you'd rather go to somewhere quieter and more private then I suggest Lido Beach which is nearby and has a lot fewer people and more shells, which I prefer also.

Siesta Key Beach is an 8 mlle stretch of the most beautiful white sandy beach in the USA The sand stays cool under your feet, it's amazing. There are lots of accommodations along the beach, condos, apartments, private homes, family friendly resorts.The beach offers picnic grounds and a concession stand. It has year round life guard protection and you can also borrow a beach wheelchair if you are traveling with someone who has trouble walking on the sand. It's also walking distance to many shops and restaurants. It's worth the visit!

This is by far the best beach ever! The sand is like powder and never gets hot! All our beach vacations will now be here!
