Beach Access Points on Siesta

Where are the Siesta Key Beach Access Points? That’s one of the most important things to know when you choose where you will stay on Siesta. If you plan to spend a lot of time on the beach, make sure you ask the distance to the closest beach access.  Some access points have little or no parking. Others with parking spaces can fill quickly – so look for accommodations that make going back and forth to the beach easy.

There are over a dozen beach access points on 8 mile long Siesta Key. Each is different – from quiet and laid back to lively and busy. Just pick your favorite activity – people watching, fishing, volleyball, bird watching, wind surfing – and you’ll find there’s a beach for that on Siesta Key!

BeachPoint Cottages is only 1000 feet or less from five different Beach Access Points: 2, 3, 3B, 4 & 5.  And you can jump on the Siesta Breeze Trolley at Access 5 for a free ride to many of the others. Here’s some information that will help you pick just the right spot to stay when you visit Siesta Key.
