Crescent Beach reviews
Crystal white sand, emerald green and blue water and the most amazing sunsets, Crescent Beach on Siesta Key is stunning! more »
Probably our favorite beach on Siesta. There’s no public parking on the southern end so you have to know an owner to get close to Point of Rocks.
Beautiful beach free parking great place to see the sunset. I've been to a lot of beaches in Florida this one is right up there among the top.
