“Quiet Beach in Siesta Key”
Review of Turtle Beach

Reviewed 28 June 2018

Smaller beach than Siesta Beach and it doesn't have the soft powdery sand of Siesta Beach but it was still very nice. Free parking and it is a short walk from the parking lot to the beach. It did seem t have more shells than Siesta Beach. I recommend and would visit again.

This beach has undergone extensive restoration and it looks great. Sand is fine and powdery but not the white sand of Crescent Beach. Still, a great place with easy parking if you get there early.

We love this beach. It’s at the end of the island, so it’s quiet and less crowded. The sand is darker & more coarse, but there are lots of cool shells. In the past, we see have snorkeled for shells & seen fish. We were bummed that it was red tide this week, which made the beach/ocean a lot less enjoyable our last few days here.

We drove here from our house near siesta key beach hoping to see some sea turtles. We didn't see any! Rather disappointing but just our luck. Water was pretty. Plenty of parking. Saw a lot of people with scuba gear.

I stopped at this beach for only 30 mins and wish I had scheduled more time here! The water was way clearer than siesta beach and the sand was softer. More shell options as well!
