Turtle Beach, Siesta Key

4.2
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 is quite ok but no beach beats Siesta Beach. Siesta Beach have silicon sand instead of ordinary sand and never gets hot, but feels cool and pleasant. In addition, it feels like walking in starch, soft and nice.
