Siesta Key Florida
Situated in the crystal blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico, Siesta Key Florida has much to offer to those who visit as well as to those who call the 8-mile long island home. In fact, the island’s Siesta Beach was recently named the number one beach by the Dr. Stephen P. Letherman (a.k.a. “Dr Beach”). With its numerous beaches, bountiful attractions and lovely location, it is easy to see why so many are interested in calling Siesta Key home.
While Siesta Beach is the beach to most recently be named the number one beach in the country, Siesta Key is home to many other beautiful beaches. Crescent Beach, which is located on the north side of the key, has also been rated among the top ten beaches in the world. Given its white sand beaches and blue waters, it’s easy to see why the beach has received this honor. The south side’s Turtle Beach, on the other hand, is home to hundreds of turtles and their nests during the summer months. It is truly a nature lover’s paradise.
When it comes to purchasing Siesta Key real estate, there are many options available to select from. While the gulf side is characterized by white sands and blue waters, the bay side offers homes and condos featuring docks for boating. Those who are interested in a single family home may be attracted to the north side, which is home to the largest neighborhood on the island. Those who prefer to live in a smaller neighborhood may be more attracted to the south side, while both sides have plenty of condos to choose from.
