The city of Sarasota is located on the central-southwest coast of Florida. It is south of the Tampa Bay Area and north of Fort Myers. Its current official limits include Sarasota Bay and several barrier islands between the bay and the Gulf of Mexico.
Siesta Key is a barrier island off the central-southwest coast of Florida in the United States; it is situated between Sarasota Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. A portion of it lies within the city of Sarasota, but most of the key is a census-designated place in Sarasota County.
Islands separating Sarasota Bay from the gulf near the city are known as keys, include Lido Key and Siesta Key, which are famous worldwide for the quality of their sandy beaches.
Today keys that are included in the boundary of Sarasota are Lido Key, St. Armands Key, Otter Key, Coon Key, Bird Key, and a part of Siesta Key. Previously, Siesta Key was named Sarasota Key. At one time, it and all of Longboat Key were considered part of Sarasota.
Siesta Key Beach is central Florida's gateway to the emerald-green waters of the Gulf of Mexico, an island that combines luxury within a relaxed environment that appeals to both visitors and locals. On the east side of this eight-mile long barrier island is Sarasota Bay and Florida's intracoastal waterway, combining to make a scenic trail for adventurers interested in exploring the mangrove forests that dot the area, fishing for snook or pompano, and/or cruising to Sarasota's dockside restaurants and pubs. On the island's west side is the Gulf of Mexico and Siesta Key's famous white sand beaches that were ranked number one in America in 2011 by Dr. Beach. There's more to Siesta Key than just beaches and water. This island is a destination for all who stay or live in the Sarasota area thanks to the wide variety of entertainment and dining options that stretch its length.
