Siesta Key is a couple’s paradise. Below we cover the five most romantic and special activities you and your loved one can do on a romantic escape to this Gulfside key. The best couple’s activities are something both people can enjoy immensely. Below are some of the best romantic things to do in Siesta Key for two.

1. Couple’s Massage

What could possibly be more romantic than a couple’s massage? While there are a few places on the island to go to, we recommend the warm and welcoming Omega Massage Therapy.

The owner of Omega Massage Therapy, Belen, is a long-time local, and her appreciation for care and community is intoxicating.

Her reviews on Tripadvisor are utterly glowing. Omega has only been open for a few years, but Belen came from another acclaimed local spa, Hands of Light, to offer personal experiences of relaxation. She focuses on massage in a cozy and cottage-style room. Couples options are, of course, available daily.

Omega Massage is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays, and closed Sundays.

2. Picnic on the Beach

It just so happens that the Siesta Key beaches are perfect for romance. Take a walk along the coast and before you know it, you circled half the island!

When you stay at the resort, it will be hard to do anything other than hang by the pool or relax on the beach because you are just steps away from both. Since you are so close, pack a picnic and head to Sunset Pointe for the best seat on the island to our famous sunsets.

You can get anything you need at Morton’s Market less than a block from the resort, or have it delivered to your door! Yup, you can lay in bed and have breakfast delivered to your resort room by ordering online. Now that is luxury!

3. Shop for Unique Gifts

There’s a small-town community feel to Siesta Key, and you can see this walking the shop-lined streets of the island.

Check out a few of the top Siesta Key boutiques where you can find anything you could want on your trip or as a souvenir. One of the most special places to stop is The Woman’s Exchange.

You can seek out a dizzying assortment of items, from small and low-priced unique gifts to high-end retail items you may not find anywhere else at such a low price. It all goes to support the many programs that give low-income individuals a path to an education, abused women a chance at a second life, and the donation of tens of thousands of items to schools and children’s centers.

4. Just Explore

Siesta Key Village is a distinct historic landmark and a representation of the Old Florida aesthetics of the island in the last century.

We particularly love the dining. Restaurants include the Old Salty Dog, Siesta Beach Café, and the quaint Broken Egg Restaurant.

Siesta Key Village has plenty of newer attractions in the area. It is charming old-fashioned Florida, and a slice of the wonder and magic of Siesta Key before the turn of the century.

5. Stop at Downtown Gulf Gate

Gulf Gate is a renowned global-oriented district of incredible fine dining. It is often considered “Sarasota’s Epcot,” and it won’t take long to see why.

Numerous restaurants line the few small walking streets. You can find Polish, German, Asian, and even Scandinavian options in a nearly one-block-radius. There’s plenty of vegan selections, organic juices, and many other unique food options to satisfy any and all visitors.

Best yet, it’s a romantic and atmospheric place to see at night.

Where to Stay

Don’t just stay at any old place. We have special suites to maximize the romance for your getaway.

Honeymoon Suite

Our honeymoon suite exudes elegance. We have some of the finest options in the island to create a romantic mood, with the moon glowing from above and the moonlight bouncing off the cascading shores.

Other Romantic Accommodations

You can even bring a pet along. Our Siesta Key pet-friendly rentals allow you to conveniently bring your pup for the adventure, which is great for young couples who want to avoid a dog-sitter for the week.
