Siesta Key boasts 3 world-class beaches

There is never a shortage of things to do at Midnight Cove.

With the crystal white sands of America's Best Beach just steps away, gulf side and bayside pools, two tennis courts, picnic areas, and more, there is never a shortage of things to do at Midnight Cove, but our little piece of paradise is certainly worth exploring and our location in the heart of Siesta Key puts it all at your fingertips. 

Siesta Key boasts 3 world-class beaches Siesta Beach, Crescent Beach and Turtle Beach, each with its own unique charm, all well worth a visit. 

Our most popular beach, Siesta Beach has been recognized as America's Best Beach by Dr. Beach, America's foremost beach expert. Siesta Beach offers a playground, tennis and beach volleyball courts, and concessions stands. Siesta Public Beach is protected by on-duty lifeguards. 

Besting over 30 entrants, the crystal white sand of Crescent Beach was named "The World's Finest, Whitest Sand™" at the Great International Sand Challenge in 1987 and the Travel Channel recognized it as "The Best Sand Beach in America" in 2004. Just south of Siesta Beach and with only one public access, Crescent beach offers a more secluded beach experience that is perfect spot to cuddle of with a great beach book or that special someone. 

A favorite among locals, Turtle Beach on the southern tip of the island offers picnic areas, a volleyball court, horseshoe pit and playground, and fishing is permitted in nearby Blind Pass Lagoon. Unlike the powdery white sands of Crescent and Siesta Beaches, the sand on Turtle Beach is darker and coarser.
