Destination guide

Siesta Key has sugar-white sand

Siesta Beach is regularly hailed on lists of the very best in the United States. It strings along Florida's Treasure Coast, fringing the edge of Siesta Key like a wisp of white cloud that's lapped by a sky-blue sea. But the sands aren't the only draw. This barrier isle is also a fun-loving family hotspot, laden with coffee shops and oyster bars, kayak rentals and turtle sanctuaries. Siesta Key vacation rentals cover all sorts, whether you're after a pad overlooking the waves of the Mexican Gulf or a modern apartment that takes the whole crew.

Things to do

Blinding beaches in Siesta Key

There's no doubt about it – the main attraction of Siesta Key is Siesta Beach. That long stretch of sand so white you might just be tempted to spoon it into your morning coffee is regularly hailed as one of the most beautiful in the whole United States. With its aquamarine waters and undulating dunes, it says, "Move over, California!" You could even bag yourself a Siesta Key vacation rental with views over the shoreline, just to make sure you're the first laying down the towel, come morning.


Splashing around Siesta Key

Wobbling on a paddle board or blowing bubbles from a snorkeling tube, whizzing on personal watercraft or carving wakes through the Gulf – all sorts of aqua fun is on the menu in Siesta Key. Home to boating outfitters, big fishing tourers, kitesurfing guides and turtle conservationists, this Floridian island is the place to be if you love making a splash. Dolphin cruises and whale spotting usually top the menu for families. A meeting with bottlenoses and beaked whales is all but guaranteed, between December and February.


Something tropical in Siesta Key

The palms and Caribbean-esque sands of Siesta Key should be a clue to the island's tropical nature. Enjoying year-round warmth and 100s of days of sunshine, there's never really a time when the board shorts and bikinis aren't needed. Loads of people will head down during the US winter. Temperatures average around 62–74 between December and March, and there's hardly any rain at all – you'll get a tan while the snows fall in the Midwest. Summer, from June to September, is the hottest time. It also brings more chance of rain and the occasional tropical storm.
