Siesta Key Beach, Florida

Plan your next family beach vacation at Siesta Key Beach, and you will understand why it is one of the best beaches on the Gulf Coast – in fact, it’s been voted best beach in the USA by Trip Advisor readers three times!

With its soft, pristine white sand, a large picnic area, and gazebos that provide shelter for the entire family, you and your kids are sure to have a splendid time at Siesta Key Beach. If you are looking at staying on one of the best islands or keys in Florida, you’ve found it.

There are several playgrounds nearby where your kids can enjoy some off-beach fun time. Other fun off-beach activities on Siesta Key include going on a Marie Selby Botanical Gardens tour and exploring the vast species of wildlife at the Mote Marine Aquarium.

Nearby Crescent Beach can be a little quieter if you’re not a fan of the big crowds at Siesta Key Beach, or at the southern tip of the 8-mile long Siesta Key, Turtle Beach is a favorite for seashell hunting. It’s no wonder it consistently comes up as one of the best things to do in Florida for families.

Where to stay: Accommodation for families doesn’t come cheap here but try your own holiday rental property or on a luxury retreat spoil yourselves to Tropical Beach Resort
