“Not a great beach for sand”
Review of Turtle Beach

Turtle Beach
Ranked #4 of 27 things to do in Siesta Key

Reviewed 19 June 2014

This beach would be very disappointing if i rented a condo nearby. It's sand is not very fine and a lot of shellsmixed in the sand for a rough walk. The sand banks into the water and is not a very nice beach. The public beach in Siesta Key is much better, just get there before 10:30 or you won't get a parking place.

The sand is a bit rough, but great swimming area. It's also less crowded and more intimate than Siesta. Great beach to watch a sunset. Good drop off close to shore. We camped here at Turtle Beach campground. Be careful with poor swimmers and young children as this us also a likely area to get caught in a riptide. The water temp is also very warm and comfortable this time of year.

Love to visit the beaches of Siesta Key, FL. This one is a rough one for swimming, but folks love to fish, sunbath, and just enjoy nature here!

We drove to see this beach on purpose. It is a little out of the way. The sand is more black than white and a little more like gravel. This is not a flat beach, it does slope a little as you are coming down to it. Not nearly as busy as other beaches in the area. Also the water seems a little more murkey.

If you want to find sea shells, this is the place to go! My husband has a mission to find a BIG conch shell, and I think that this may be the place he'll find it eventually!
