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.

Crescent Beach reviews
Just a wonderful experience for a beach day or sunset. Sand is white and they groom it often to get the best surface. Ton's of room for kite flying or a volleyball game. Don't miss it!

Crystal clear, mostly private for visitors to the condos/villas and simply perfection. Annual trip for my family for many years! You don’t need to travel to any Caribbean island for incredible water..... more

Amazing beach! It was RED TIDE the last time we went and it was still a beautiful place to rest!
Crescent Beach has the finest sand that feels so soothing as you walk on it. The beach spans for miles and has so much space that it doesn’t feel crowded. There are options for kayaking and fishing. There is a trolley that you can use to quickly get to the village where there are shops and restaurants. I absolutely love it here for a peaceful and relaxing day. ☀️🙂
