Siesta Key is anything but sleepy. A family friendly destination, Siesta Key’s public beach was voted America’s number 1 beach in 2011. This impressive accolade increased tourism and made for an even more vibrant beachfront village. Four distinct areas- Siesta Beach, Crescent Beach, Turtle Beach and Siesta Key Village, make up the 8-mile long Siesta Key.
