It’s no secret that Siesta Key, besides its beaches, is known for its gorgeous sunsets. Due to the location of the island facing west towards the Gulf of Mexico, Siesta Key provides front row seats to watch the sun go down on another beautiful day. While you are bound to see the sunset from almost anywhere on the island, here are the top places to watch the Siesta Key sunset.

Siesta Key Public Beach

Anywhere from Siesta Key Beach, you will be able to witness the sunset. But a very popular spot for people to end their day is between the green and blue lifeguard stand on Siesta Key public beach. Grab your blankets or chairs and sit back and relax as you sign off on another wonderful day in Siesta Key.

Sunset Point

As one of our favorite places to watch the Siesta Key sunset, Sunset Point offers the best views around. Located at the north end of Siesta Public Beach, Sunset Beach is a large piece of land that juts out in the water, bringing you closer to colorful sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico.

Turtle Beach

For a more quiet and private viewing experience, visit nearby Turtle Beach. Aptly named Turtle Beach, the area is a nesting ground for sea turtles from May to October. Bring items for a picnic or BBQ for a beachfront dining experience.

Siesta Key Drum Circle

Join in on the fun with the Siesta Key Drum Circle and watch as the sun dips behind the horizon for a truly unforgettable evening. The drum circle performs every Sunday, just about an hour before sunset. Find them at Siesta Public Beach, just south of the main Pavilion.

Dine at Ophelia’s

The best places to watch the Siesta Key sunset aren’t always on the beach. Treat yourself to an evening of waterfront dining at Ophelia’s. This upscale restaurant sits on the bayside, still offering epic sunset views and extraordinary food experience.
