Crescent Beach, Siesta Key

4.6
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. Use our Siesta Key online holiday planner to arrange your visit to Crescent Beach and other attractions in Siesta Key.
