Siesta Key is an eight-mile long barrier island connected to Sarasota and the mainland by two bridges. Along the island's west side, you'll find miles of sandy beaches. And these are not just ordinary beaches--they are 99 percent pure quartz.

It looks and feels like ultra white sugar, powdery soft and cool to the touch. Maybe that's why Siesta Key's beaches have won numerous awards including "the world's finest and whitest", National Geographic's "best beaches of the world", USA TODAY'S "top ten beaches in America" and Condé Nast Traveler's "The Best of the Best Sand". And with "Sunsets on the Key" located on the beachside of Siesta Village, you are just 250 steps to perfection.

While “Sunsets on the Key” offers a quiet interlude from the day’s hectic pace, we’re not too removed. Just around the corner, you’ll find Siesta Key Village with its eateries, gift boutiques and local artists’ galleries. For your convenience, The Village also has drug, grocery and hardware stores. Some of the finest golf, tennis, boating and watersports are nearby. Contact the Siesta Key Chamber of Commerce for details on local activities. 

If you’re interested in visiting other islands or the mainland, “Sunsets on the Key” is just a short drive from: St. Armand's Circle with dining and shops, Mote Marine Aquarium, Ringling Museum of Art and Marie Selby Botanical Gardens. For an evening out on the town, consider one of the area's first-class restaurants, combined with the opera, entertainment and theatre--perhaps a performance at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall or the historic Asolo Theater. For a day trip, consider Tampa’s Busch Gardens or travel just two hours to Orlando’s Walt Disney World® Resort, Universal Studios or SeaWorld.
