Siesta Key

Siesta Key

Founded in 1846, the key was home to primarily fish camps. After World War II, the low key attitude and gorgeous beaches of Siesta began to attract vacationers and new residents alike. Today, the key is home to about 15,000 friendly year round residents, and nearly twice as many “in season”. Siesta’s charming old Florida feel and southern hospitality has brought people to it’s shores from around the globe, adding to it‘s relished cultural diversity. A sunset stroll along Siesta beach will reveal the many beautiful languages spoken by it’s admirers.  Siesta Key boasts over six miles of almost pure quartz, powdery sand beaches. It is renowned for having the “finest and whitest” sand in world. Hugging the Gulf of Mexico, Siesta beach is not only soft on the feet, but on the eyes as well. The clear blue waters of the gulf allow it’s swimmers to watch as they squish the sand between their toes. Beach goers on a hot summer’s day enjoy warm gentle waves, and soft sand that stays cool to the touch. Siesta Key is also home to some of Florida’s natural landscaping and wild life. The key and its beaches are lined by wild sea oats, sea grapes, and mangroves that house many of Florida’s native birds, including exotic parrots. Dolphins and manatees can often be spotted playing off of the shore. As abundant as the wildlife are the many leisure and water sports activities the key has to offer. From water skiing, snorkeling and parasailing, to jet ski and boat rentals, there is something to suite every palate and age group. Siesta Key is the perfect location for beach bums and thrill seeking adventurists from every walk of life.

Siesta is a Spanish word which refers to the short nap taken in the early afternoon, observed by the Spanish cultures. The break, in concept, is to allow people to spend time with family and friends.
