Siesta Key & Sarasota

Siesta Key, located on the West coast of Florida and off the Gulf of Mexico is a city full of charm. This destination is perfect for those looking to escape to a small city with so much to offer. The town is home to many local businesses to shop and support, and food you can’t get anywhere else.

Located just a short drive from Tropical Beach Resorts is the city of Sarasota, which is rising in popularity and offers tons of events for locals and visitors alike.

Breathtaking Beaches

Siesta Key Beach was ranked #2 on TripAdvisor’s 2023 Traveler’s Choice Awards, and for good reason. The powdery white sand mixed with picturesque sunsets off the water is enough to make anybody want to come back for more! There are three main beaches in the Siesta Key area: Siesta, Crescent, and Turtle Beach. Each beach has something different to offer, and you and your family are guaranteed to find the beach that best suits your personality and vacation needs.

Siesta Beach is arguably the most popular beach spot. The sand is soft and 99% quartz, making for the perfect beach-strolling destination. The beach area offers volleyball and tennis courts for those who like to spend their time on and off the beach, and two concession stands for convenient snacking during your day. This beach is where the Drum Circle takes place every Sunday evening, and is walking distance from Siesta Key Village, home to dozens of restaurants, shops, and more. 

If you are in search of a more peaceful, private beach experience, look no further than Crescent Beach. Crescent Beach is located right beside Tropical Beach Resorts and is perfect for those looking for some peace and quiet on their trip. One of this beach’s finest features is Point of Rocks. This is the perfect snorkeling spot, home to corals and limestones that house small sea creatures like fish and crustaceans. When visiting in the summer, there’s a possibility of manatee sightings in this area as well! 

Would you consider your family more upbeat and active? Then Turtle Beach is the spot for you. Here you’ll find volleyball courts, a horseshoe pit, and picnic tables for you and your family to enjoy. This beach is also a hidden gem for the shell collectors in your family. The hills and valleys on this beach are home to plenty of shells, and if you’re lucky, shark teeth!
