Siesta Beach in Sarasota continues to bask in national and global recognition for its pristine beauty and inviting atmosphere. With its quartz-crystal powdery sand and gentle waves, Siesta Beach provides visitors with a quintessential seaside experience. Recently, TripAdvisor unveiled its prestigious Travelers’ Choice Awards List, spotlighting the top 25 beaches in the world—and Siesta Beach proudly secured its place among them.

Beyond its natural allure, Siesta Beach boasts ample amenities, including convenient parking, well-equipped concession stands, and complimentary trolley service for island exploration.

Whether you are seeking relaxation or adventure, Siesta Beach promises an unforgettable escape.

Siesta Beach was ranked as one of the best beaches in America, too. Another Tampa Bay area beach, Clearwater Beach, is ranked as the 12th best beach in the country.

Enjoy stellar views at the JW Marriott Clearwater Beach Resort & Spa

Clearwater Beach is a family-friendly beach with powdery, white sand, blue waters, and spectacular sunsets. Hop on a boat and cruise across the sea, soak up the sun on the soft shore, or stroll along the spacious walkway. There are showers and restrooms, and parking’s a breeze.


When you visit Clearwater Beach, we highly recommend staying at the JW Marriott Clearwater Beach (you can also access their beach and amenities on ResortPass) and enjoying a Turkish brunch at Mio’s Grill & Cafe, one of the best restaurants in the country according to Yelp.
