Enjoy the #1 beach in the United States – and the #11 beach in the world – on Siesta Key. Since 2015, Siesta Beach has been named the #1 beach in the country by the TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Awards three times! If you want to go beach hopping, from Siesta Beach to Crescent Beach to Turtle Beach, call up the Siesta Trolley for a ride in style. Siesta Trolley and Transportation Inc. offer trolleys that can take 22 to 36 passengers, as well as smaller vehicles and a white trolley for wedding rides.
Stay active by taking a tour of the Key at sunset on an electric bike with Sarasota Bike Tours. The sunset ride is around seven to nine miles and stops at various places along the journey to Sunset Point. If you’d rather be even closer to the water, hop on a jet ski or try out parasailing! There’s no better view of the Gulf of Mexico than right above it. When it’s time to relax, check out the community-organized Siesta Key Drum Circle about an hour before sunset on Sunday nights.
