Are you wondering which Florida beach is the best? If so, you’re in the right place!

I’m a huge fan of Florida’s white sand and crystalline waters, so choosing the best beach is tough.

Still, Siesta Key wins out for me on many levels. This is the best Florida beach in 2024.

Let’s look at the top factors that make Siesta Key Beach AH-maze-ing. 

Why Siesta Key Is The Best Florida Beach In 2024?

Gilligan’s Island Bar and Grill is another venue you won’t want to miss.

It exudes old Florida charm. The tiki decks are super fun. Local bands play here every evening.

If seafood sounds good, Big Water Fish Market is the place to go. The fish and chips here will melt in your mouth they’re so good.

Everything is fresh and delicious, especially complimented with this eatery’s signature spicy sauces.

Sun Garden Café is another fun spot for breakfast in Siesta Key, especially for pecan-bacon waffles, sweet potato pancakes, and mind-blowing eggs benedict.

    Thank you for sharing! I had no idea to use talcom powder to get off the sand. I’ll definitely be trying that next time I visit the beach! Thank you for your recommendations.
