You may have already heard of Siesta Key as a hot spot for sun-filled vacations and nightlife fun, but did you know that this 8-mile long island has lots of year-round residents and a local appeal that combines beach life with easy access to Sarasota's mainland amenities?

Siesta Key offers a wide range of price points and home styles. From a comfortable bungalow to a beachfront mansion, there are a lot of options. And the community itself is just as dynamic. In addition to the magnificent beach, Siesta Key Village offers dining and recreational options that keep you entertained. If you want to get off the island to eat or shop, several bridges make it easy to come and go, and the distance to downtown is very short.
