Siesta Key is a beautiful barrier island eight miles long just offshore of Sarasota, Florida. It is alive with tropical atmosphere, blessed with the world’s finest, whitest beaches, filled with charming hideaways, and always offering plenty to do. Siesta Key is home to more than 24,000 full time and part time residents as well as a wide array of tropical trees, plants, and birds. While all the conveniences of modern life are easily accessible, Siesta Key is still remote enough feel like old Florida.
Two bridges link the island to the mainland, allowing it to remain an uncomplicated natural paradise without sacrificing the amenities of contemporary life. The north bridge, Siesta Drive, is within the City of Sarasota and provides convenient access to downtown Sarasota, its business and arts districts. The south bridge, Stickney Point Road, provides access to south Sarasota County and a direct route to Interstate 75.
After vacationing on Siesta Key many people decide to live or purchase a second home there. A host of options are available to the prospective buyer. Beachfront homes range from modest bungalows to sprawling palatial estates. The miles of canals and lagoons on the key provide waterfront real estate more inexpensively. Also available are bayside efficiencies within a short walk to the beach and the popular high-rise condos with gorgeous ocean and bay views.
