Top Rated Beaches
One cannot complete a Siesta Key vacation without the quintessential beach day. The most popular beaches include Siesta Beach and Turtle Beach, both of which are great options but have a few differences. Siesta Beach is a beautiful, populous beach with incredible views of the Gulf of Mexico. It is also right by Tropical Breeze Resort, so no need to worry about a long journey when you stay with us. For those looking for a more low-key beach trip, check out Turtle Beach. During turtle nesting season, which extends from the end of March to the beginning of October, beach goers have a chance to see some just hatched baby turtles! The nearby beaches also offer rentals from kayaks to parasails to paddle boards — there are equipment rentals available for every beach activity!
No matter what your interests are, Siesta Key has an event that is perfect for you and your family this Labor Day weekend. Whether you’re into watersports, lounging on the sand, taking a tour, visiting historic areas or seeing a show, these vacation activities are sure to delight travelers from anywhere and make you fall in love with the Siesta Key area like so many others have before.
