Trip Planner: USA / Florida / Siesta Key / Turtle Beach
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 Turtle Beach visit and explore what else you can see and do in Siesta Key using our Siesta Key online tour itinerary maker.
Turtle Beach reviews
Beautiful , quiet beach. The water was incredible. I snorkeled some. Loved it here. There were no shells, if that’s your goal. But the access is very easy and short.

We stayed at turtle beach resort, and it was awesome. The staff was warm and welcoming, and the breakfast was good.

This beach is AMAZING! It's not as busy, the water is crystal clear, black sand beaches and the shells!!! If anyone has anything bad to say about this beach they are just complainers! Free parking too
My most favorite beach in Sarasota at the very bottom of Siesta Key. Forever parking with 10 Beach access walkovers. Gulf on one side and lagoon on the other. 2 public boat ramps with decated parking, kayak launches, playground, covered picnic, the beautiful Gulf of Mexico and world famous beach.
