Beach Conditions - Northern Tip of Siesta Key

We are considering a condo on the northern part of the island, but we are not familiar with the beach/water up there. We love the calm, crystal clear water by the public beach...and the sandbars. Will we find the same thing up north? Thanks in advance!

I really need some help with this. Is the beach/water at the northern tip similar to SK public beach area? This is a big deal because we think there is a big difference b/w the northern tip of Anna Maria island compared to the Holmes beach area.

SRQ, a house, actually.

Anna Maria Island is a very different place as far as currents, riptides, etc.

That problem doesn't exist on SK if you are talking about the northern area of Beach Rd.

The beach is more narrow but the water/sand is the same..IF you are talking about the northern Beach Rd. area.

SRQgirl, is the water shallow for quite a distance out from the shoreline similar to the public beach?

Yes, but it depends on where you are...If you are on the side of Big Pass (not Beach Rd.) you have a different situation entirely. If behand the area of Sandbox on the Beach etc. it is shallow.
