Oysters anyone?

Slurp a dozen at Siesta Key Oyster Bar. Also partake in Crustacean Happy Hour, daily live trop-rock music, and brunch featuring The Blue Law Margarite.

How about pancakes?

Chat with locals over pancakes and bacon at Another Broken Egg Cafe. If you’re lucky, you may meet frequent patron, sportscaster Dick Vitale.

Karaoke all night long

Sing your heart out at karaoke at Captain Curt’s Crab and Oyster Bar. You don’t know any of these people, anyway, so feel free to fully rock out. Their Sniky Tiki bar will help with your courage.

Dance to the beat

Dance, sway, and feel the rhythm at the Siesta Key Drum Circle. Every Sunday evening beginning an hour before sunset, this gathering of percussion seduces locals and visitors alike with their rhythmic beat upon the sand.

Frozen Daiquiri on a hot day

Try a Voodoo Love Shake, Hurricane Warning, Smurf, or any of the other 20 flavors of daiquiri at The Daiquiri Deck. And the outdoor deck seating is prime people watching location.

Cruise down the key

Cruise Siesta Key Village on two wheels in search of pastel buildings, quaint businesses, souvenirs and goodies as the salty breeze wafts around you. Pack up the basket and zip that beach cruiser right on down the beach and see the award-winning sands from end to end.

Run the beach

Run amongst the locals at the Siesta Key Fun Runs, as hundreds of children and adults venture one mile along the water’s edge in a mass of positive-energy-fueled joy. Held Tuesday evenings between June and August, you can enjoy a well-earned popsicle and a splash in the warm waters to celebrate your achievement.
