Local Fun

Siesta Key is located 55 miles south of Tampa on Florida's Gulf Coast and is an eight-mile-long barrier island connected to Sarasota by two bridges. It is remote enough to give one a feeling of old Florida, yet still provides all the conveniences of modern life.

The winding routes to the beaches are lined with lush foliage, mature trees and tropical flowering shrubs. The beaches are refreshingly natural, with scores of native island birds that share the island, as well as dolphins, manatees and other wildlife living just offshore.

With two shopping districts offering over 150 stores to choose from, you'll soon realize that Siesta Key is a shopper's paradise! You'll find unique boutiques, galleries, salons and shops in which to indulge yourself. Our friendly merchants welcome casual browsing. Whether you enjoy formal, romantic, ocean side, or family-oriented dining, Siesta Key is your island of culinary delights! You will find it all here; seafood, Italian, American, Oriental and French, complete with nightclub music and dancing.

Fishing, boating, snorkeling, sail boarding, parasailing and scuba diving are among the many water sports available at Siesta Key. If staying on land is more your style, enjoy a round of golf, bicycling or roller-blading around the village, or enjoy a sunset stroll along the beach.
