Named for its sea turtle nesting habitat, Turtle Beach is a great destination to incorporate into your vacation in Sarasota. With coarser sand and a steeper slope where the beach drops off into the water more dramatically than its neighboring Siesta Beach, those who love to snorkel and search for shells know the benefits of these features!
Turtle Beach may also be the perfect launching pad for a day’s adventures on the water, with Blind Pass Lagoon in the center of the park and its boat ramp providing access to Little Sarasota Bay. Residents and visitors alike enjoy launching fishing boats, kayaks and standup paddleboards in this area.
Complete with a brand-new playground, horseshoe courts, picnic tables and a picnic shelter, volleyball court and restrooms, perhaps your family would be interested in planning a cookout to take advantage of this park’s amenities. Whether you can’t wait to simply put your toes in the sands, or cast a fishing line into Little Sarasota Bay, Turtle Beach awaits! One “amenity” which is sure to please anyone and everyone: SUNSET on Turtle Beach.
Note: There are no lifeguards on duty at Turtle Beach.
The Comfort Suites Sarasota is located 9.5 miles from Turtle Beach on Siesta Key.
