Siesta Key enjoys being named one of the TOP RATED BEACHES in the U.S.A. by "Dr. Beach and the Travel Channel" because of it's soft 99% pure quartz sand that stays cool under your feet. The beach offers volleyball courts, tennis courts and shaded playground area with convenient concession stand within a short distance anywhere on the beach. The Village Shoppes and restaurants offer a lot of options to feed the palette.
