The Village of Siesta Key
The Village of Siesta Key, which is about half a mile further south, is the heart of the Key. The Village is where restaurants and bars (with or without live music) are dominating the area. But if you like it quiet and more secluded, the Village of Siesta Key is not for you. There are certain areas where the tourists do not bother you so much.
East of the Village
East of the village it is not so busy anymore; here you find a mixture of lovely single family homes on beautiful canals. There are also condos in the area. All the waterways are leading into the Intracoastal Waterway, not the Golf of Mexico. Most of the big condo buildings are lined up along the Golf side or in some spots on the Intracoastal Waterway.
South of the Village
The southern section of the island is not so much impacted by tourism. The condos are fading out, and single family homes are determining the picture. Lush tropical landscaping hides most of the homes. There are fewer condo buildings, a marina, and a nice restaurant. Ophelia’s on the Bay is a great waterfront restaurant on Siesta Key.
Further south Siesta Key merges with Casey Key. The most southern beach on Siesta is much quieter than the northern counterpart. However, in comparison to this beach, the sand on the Public Beach is still “creme de la creme” and unbeatable.
