On our overnight yacht charter itinerary, we can cruise all the way up to Siesta Key just south of Sarasota, Florida. In 2010, Siesta Key was listed by Dr. Beach as the number one beach in the United States. It's great fun cruising to several of Sarasota's dockside restaurants and pubs. On the west side of the island are Siesta Key's glorious white sand beaches and the calm waters of the Gulf. Take a leisurely dip while searching for shells in the clear turquoise Gulf water or just relax and soak up some sun on the white sugar sand beaches. Afterwards, you can always find a comfortable spot onboard the yacht to relish in a postcard-perfect moment when the sun dips below the horizon and boldly paints the sky in strokes of orange, red and purple. Southwest Florida's dramatic sunsets are among the most incredible in the world!
There's so much more to Siesta Key than just beaches and water though. On this island, there is a wide variety of entertainment and dining options that stretch it's entire length. On the north end, lies Siesta Key Village and by walking a few blocks, you'll find scores of shops that cater to the "island lifestyle" with great gifts, jewelry, souvenirs, clothing and of course, bathing suits. Towards the south end of Siesta Key you'll find even more restaurants and quaint island shops along with the world class beaches. Casual and uniquely beautiful, Siesta Key is an ideal spot to spend your yacht charter vacation! Siesta Key Village restaurants have an abundance of large, open-air dining venues ranging from burger joints to award-winning fine dining spots. However, no matter how upscale, the dress code is always casual. Flip flops are not only permitted, they're the rule more than the exception in Siesta Key, Florida!
