Life on the beach is great, but there is plenty to enjoy offshore as well. With crystal clear blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the sandy white beaches, activities like snorkeling and kayaking are ideal. Venture even further out with a sailing excursion or take your vacation to new heights and try parasailing. No matter what speaks to you, there is fun waiting for you during your Siesta Key vacation.
