wild parrots

One of the incredible sites you will experience while visiting Siesta Key are the wild parrots.  These colorful birds are easily spotted and heard throughout Siesta.  They travel in flocks and often pass by with a “honk”, letting you know they are in the area.  Look for them at Siesta Key Beach, Turtle Beach and many area condos.

Paddleboarding

SUP!   SUP stands for Stand Up Paddleboard, and if you haven’t experienced it yet, Siesta Key is the perfect place to give it a try.  With our calm water, light wind and shallow sand, this is a great location for your entire family to enjoy a few hours or even a day on a paddle board.  There are several shops on Siesta Key that rent Paddle Boards.  Our favorite is Siesta Paddle Sports.  They offer a complimentary “getting started” video at their Siesta Key location.  PFD’s, paddles and a safety whistle are also available with their paddle board rentals.  Find them online at siestapaddlesports.com or call them at 941-404-4624 to reserve your paddle board today!
