Turtle Beach, Siesta Key

3.6
#3 of 22 in Outdoors in Siesta Key
Beach Nature / Park
Enjoy beach activities or go for a stroll at Turtle Beach. The beach is rarely crowded, which makes it a favored destination for nesting sea turtles. Facilities include restrooms, showers, a playground, picnic tables, and free parking. You'll find ramps for launching boats, though the water is easily accessible for kayaks and canoes, too. The sand on the beach is coarse and can get rather hot during the warm days, so consider wearing flip-flops or sneakers. The beach drop-off is relatively steep, providing excellent opportunities for shelling and snorkeling. Keep an eye on the kids, though, because there are no lifeguards. Turtle nests are visibly marked and should not be disturbed. Plan your visit to Turtle Beach and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Siesta Key trip builder.

  • This beach has it all. Easy access with facilities Not crowded Easy parking Not far walk from parking to beach Sand is a little more "coarse" than Siesta key. Excellent sunsets!!  more »
  • Turtle Beach is a short drive from Siesta Keys Beach of which I prefer. Nice Beach but nothing can compare to siesta keys beach.  more »
  • Fairly steep little beach at the south end of siesta key. It was not overly crowded and not much for facilities nearby. Great place to find shells with kids though.  more »

Where to stay in Siesta Key

Most of the accommodations in Siesta Key are in the northern part of the key. Here you'll find vacation rentals in condominiums and townhouses, as well as a few hotels and bed and breakfasts near the sand. This part of Siesta Key provides convenient access to both the expansive town beach and to the city of Sarasota. Moving down the key, you'll come to quieter Turtle Beach and a smattering of cottages, bed and breakfasts, and small hotels.
