The Siesta Key Beach Pavilion is a modern, attractive, well maintained, public threshold to the beautiful white sands of Siesta Key Beach. Information services, beach toys for rent, and concessions are all included in the pavilion.

It's a trek from the beach but still nice to have these amenities, especially with young kids. We were disappointed that they weren't offering food at the sun deck.
