The Gulf Side of Turtle Beach: There’s more to Siesta Key than just the pristine white sandy shores. There is another wonderful natural phenomenon called Turtle Beach. It is located on the south end of the island of Siesta Key and is like a whole different world just waiting for you to explore it!

Located just 2.5 miles South from the Stickney Point Bridge, you’ll find the entrance to Turtle Beach. This part of the island is much more relaxed and less traveled than the Central and Northern parts of the island. You can find plenty of room on the sand to spread out and enjoy the sunshine. This beach has all the amenities for family and friends to enjoy a full day of fun and relaxation. You can throw a game the horseshoe courts, have a picnic in the shelter, play a game of volleyball, or just lounge on the shore while the kids have fun in the beachside playground. The water at Turtle Beach gets deeper more quickly than the water on the rest of the island. Some adults may prefer this because you don’t have to go so far from the beach to find chest deep water.

The sand is darker than the sand on Siesta Key and the beach is much steeper of a slope than it’s Northern sister Beach, Siesta Key. The landscape of the beach allows for a perfect destination for shelling and snorkeling. The trees bordering the Turtle Beach Campground and the beach make for a gorgeous landscape. There is natural foliage and grasses that line the border of the beach making for a beautiful feel of island paradise.

This beach is also one of the “Blue Wave” Certification beaches for its cleanliness and environmental conservation.

The County just recently completed a 21.5million dollar renourishment project on Turtle Beach. The renourishment, which was approved by county commissioners in 2011, required several years of planning and coordination by the project team through the state and federal permitting process, as well as design and construction. The work was completed last month, in time for the start of sea turtle nesting season. There was cause to celebrate after a tropical storm rolled through, as there was minimal damage and erosion which occurred during the storm.
