The Best of the Beach

Siesta Key, Sarasota FL

Banana Bay Club

This is a wonderful property for a romantic weekend or for families as every little cottage has its own kitchen and lots of
room. At the same time it is intimate, quiet and spotlessly clean. Owned by a British couple that never wanted to leave their vacation spot this destination hideaway is a bit of paradise. It is located within a few steps from a private beach and tropical warm water. The yellow and blue cottages nestle around a large pool and palm trees. A local free taxi service that works on tips will pick you up and take you into town. 888 622 6229 www.BananaBayClub.com

Siesta Key Drum Circle
DSC_0247-for-webThis should be on everyone’s bucket list. About 1,000 people of all ages show up for this free event each Sunday at 5pm till dusk on the white powder sand of Siesta Key. It is one of the most spectacular sights as small children to grandparents dance the night away. Bring your own drum, watch a spectacular sunset of orange and blue and let your hair down.
