Located approximately 55 miles south of the Tampa Gulf Coast, Siesta Key is an eight-mile-long barrier island connected to Sarasota by two bridges. First settled in 1846, Siesta Key is now home to over 24,000 full- and part-time residents.
Although within easy driving distance of the modern convenience and activity of downtown Sarasota, Siesta Key is still secluded enough to offer privacy and refreshing traces of Old Florida, such as lush foliage and winding flower-lined routes to the village.
Siesta Key’s beaches are known as the whitest in the world. Wild sea oats and mangroves provide a protective habitat for dolphins, manatees, and native island birds, making Siesta Key truly the intersection of sea and sky.
