Siesta Key

Siesta Key ©
Siesta Key draws most of its visitors with soft, white-quartz sand beaches and translucent ocean water.
Kick off your visit on the 3rd (Mon): stroll around Siesta Beach, immerse yourself in nature at Ted Sperling Park, then enjoy the sand and surf at South Lido Park, then sample the fine beverages at Siesta Key Rum, and finally meet the residents at The Cat Depot. Here are some ideas for day two: admire the masterpieces at The Ringling, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium, and then find your balance on the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Siesta Key vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.
