Turtle Beach, Siesta Key

(3.5/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • On the quiet south end of Siesta Key, this beach has old fashioned tan sand, beautiful clear water and a nice park. The new playground is a hit with kids. The adjoining lagoon is perfect for kayaking,...  more »
  • We was there on bikes. Was very nice weather with nice wiev to Mexican gulf. Hope to visited one more time in my life 
  • Since the beach renourishment in early 2016 this beach is great. Most areas are 150 ft. or more in depth. Great place to enjoy the gulf and get some sun.
