8 Best Things to Do in Siesta Key, Florida


Kayaking and paddle boarding are both popular activities in the waters that surround Siesta Key, from the beaches and coves to bays and creeks. At Turtle Beach with its slow waves, you can glide among the fish, rays, dolphins, and birds, looking down into the clear waters to discover all sorts of fascinating sea life too. Rent your gear or take a tour – the Jim Neville Marine Preserve offers a fabulous eco-friendly kayak tour where you’ll discover wildlife, unspoiled beaches and hidden lagoons. It launches from Turtle Beach, traveling through the shallow waters into multiple tidal flats. During the warmer months of the year, manatees and dolphins are often spotted around the mangrove islands, and in the winter, there’s a vast amount of migrating birds.
