Crescent Beach, Siesta Key

4.8
Crescent Beach features cool sand and calm waters. To reach this beach just outside Sarasota, you can take shuttles from the surrounding areas. Because of the distance from town, the beach is rarely crowded. The beach is 3.2 km (2 mi) long and quite wide, so you'll have plenty of space for lounging, playing frisbee, flying a kite, or searching for sand dollars. Note that Crescent Beach is often confused with the nearby Siesta Key Beach, which is less remote. Bring along a towel, umbrella, and drinking water to avoid the long walk to the shops near Siesta Key Beach.

  • Great little beach came in the middle of the night great place to think and reflect!
  • The best place on Earth really. Forever in our hearts
  • Only a few avenues for public access to the beach, otherwise, if you are stay on Midnight Pass, you'll have direct access.... And probably take shots like this one....
  • Love the beach, love the views. It's almost exactly the same as Siesta Key, but can be a little less crowded because it's mostly a private beach. Parking is an issue for both beaches. *****
  • Was a fantastic beach.
