Embracing Nap Time in Siesta Key
The word siesta refers to the tendency to take a little doze in the middle of the afternoon when it doesn’t seem all that important to do anything else. This lovely, lazy feeling will permeate your entire trip to Siesta Key, so ready yourself for lots of reclining.
Of course you’ll have plenty of opportunity to be active, too, and will surely find that your energy levels will be running high once you’ve had the chance to relax and orient yourself to island life.
That’s right, Siesta Key is a barrier island just off the coast of Florida near Sarasota. Renowned for its white sandy beaches and large population of wildlife – including birds, flowers, trees, dolphins and manatees – this destination is packed with more than just napping beach bums.
Water sports are also a popular pastime, such as sailing and snorkeling, so check out the best stretches of coastline to satisfy your need for adrenaline. Try Crescent Beach, Turtle Beach and Palmer Point Beach for a few different perspectives and possibilities, and your days in this idyllic locale will fly by.
Relish the time you have here by picking out a condo or beach house that will complement your explorations (and provide soft beds, sofas and poolside chaises perfect for snoozing in) so you can pretty much bet that all the bases will be covered.
South Central Gulf Coast Florida is bustling with activity, in its own laid-back way, so be assured that you can find what you need somewhere in the area. Everything from antique stores to outlet malls and live theater to pharmacies can be found within a few miles of this quiet key, from Gasparilla to Fort Myers.
Get the rest you need during this vacation; this is the perfect place for it.
