Pristine beaches, laid-back activities, and quiet waters bring visitors year-round to Siesta Key. The eight miles of sand have long attracted snowbirds, and have recently grown in popularity with spring breakers looking for an alternative to the raucous nights associated with destinations such as Daytona Beach. Whether you want to relax to the sound of waves on the shore or join in a game of sand volleyball, Siesta Key offers plenty to do on the beach. The village also provides entertainment for everyone, for instance the Sunday Drum Circle, where you can watch sword balancing belly dancers move to the beat of tribal drums.
The Daiquiri Deck: After a long day in the sun, relax at the Daiquiri Deck, which is open into the wee hours of the morning every day of the week. Sip on one of more than 30 flavors of daiquiris, from the classic Strawberry (made with fresh strawberries, dark and spiced rums) to the innovative Banana Slider (made with coconut rum, crème de banana, Irish cream, coconut milk, pineapple, and amaretto). And if you’re feeling wild, try the Deck Diesel, a concoction made from grain alcohol, vodka, and orange. The raw bar also serves up oysters to eat, although you can also try drinking an Apalachicola Oyster Shooter—the original comes with a freshly shucked oyster, chilled vodka, Bloody Mary mix, and fresh pepper. Save some cash by dropping in during happy hour (from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.), when small daiquiris are two-for-one.
