The most remarkable feature of Siesta Key is right outside your door at House of the Sun – the gorgeous, crystal-white always cool sands of Crescent Beach stretching out to the Gulf of Mexico. The fine quartz sand has won many awards. Just south of Crescent Beach is Point of Rocks, a popular great spot for snorkeling and diving.
House of the Sun is located across the street from the Crescent Beach shopping area, where you can find several restaurants, a variety of boutique shops, a post office, pharmacy, market, and rental centers. They’re all conveniently located, providing anything you need to enjoy your stay at the beach.
Close by you can rent a Jet Ski or kayak, schedule a parasail flight, or buy fishing equipment and bait. Bicycle or cruise up the Key to Siesta Village, to find more shops, and the world-famous Siesta Public Beach with a playground, volleyball, tennis courts, picnic areas and concession stands.
Across the bridge in Sarasota, you’ll find a wealth of arts, cultural events, museums, abundant shopping and dining venues. The area offers golf courses for every level of golfer, plays, theaters and galleries. Tampa and Orlando are an easy day-trip, with more renowned museums and entertainment centers.
