*Turtle Beach

Turtle Beach is located at the southern end of Siesta Key and doesn’t have as much commercial activity. It’s a great location for “Family Play” as it has picnic areas, a playground, a volleyball court and horseshoe pits. There’s also a boat launch, and fishing is permitted in the adjacent Blind Pass Lagoon. There are restaurants nearby, with a few local night spots just a short drive away. Turtle Beach is a narrow beach with a somewhat steeper incline. The sand on the beach is gray in color and tends to carry more shells, making it perfect for beach combers and shell collectors. Many find petrified sharks’ teeth to take home and treasure, especially after a storm.
