The #1 Beach in the USA - Of Sarasota's barrier islands, Siesta Key is the most family-oriented. Enjoy Siesta Key's laid back vibe and tropical beauty. The heart of the island is Siesta Village filled with boutiques, ice cream parlors, and eateries. The Public Beach on Siesta was voted the #1 beach in the USA in 2011 and 2015 which has increased its touristic draw. There are three distinct residential areas on the island. Gulf-front estates, Bayfront, older historic homes and large-bayou homes on deep boating water are on the North end. The center of Siesta Key has your fulltime residents in single-homes along the Grand Canal waterway with condos along Crescent Beach. The south end is the narrowest part of the island and has Gulf-front and Bayfront condos, Bayfront estates and some of the largest Gulf-front homes in Sanderling Club.
Low- and mid-rise condos, a few townhouses, both detached and attached villas, single-family homes and a handful of duplexes.
Condos range from low $200s to over $2 million.
Waterfront single-family homes can range from $300,000 to over $12 million
Non-waterfront single-family homes are priced between $200,000 and just over $2,000,000
Obviously when here you need to see the beach with its white sands (99% quartz). The sand is always cool on the feet no matter the time of year or day. Sunday evening make sure you catch the drum circle. There are beach volleyball courts and picnic areas. In the Village, visit the clubs, restaurants, shops, cart rentals, and don't miss the ice cream at Big Olaf's.
This island is just beautiful.
