The name says it all…. Siesta Key … an invitation to relaxation and rejuvenation. This beautiful and charming barrier island is located just off the coast of Sarasota and is an eight-mile stretch of pure paradise. Recognized as one of Florida’s top beaches, Siesta Key has much more to offer than white sand and emerald waters. In addition to some of the most beautiful beaches, Siesta Key offers an array of dining options, shopping malls, museums and art galleries, spas, golf and other sporting activities, as well as nightlife and entertainment.
The island has an abundance of natural and exotic wildlife adding to its charm, with plenty of history and natural beauty. That’s probably why the movie industry has chosen Siesta Key and the surrounding areas as the location of over two dozen films dating as far back as the 1920’s with stars like Charleton Heston and Denzel Washington.
The fine, white sands of Siesta Key are 99% pure quartz, and quartz is said to have magical healing powers. Siesta Key could very well be just what the doctor ordered.
