In the late afternoon, we’ll escape the sun and journey less than 1 mile away to Siesta Key Village. With about 100 stores, cafes, restaurants, bars, ice cream parlors, and businesses, we hope you’ll find exploring the village a relaxing and fun adventure and a great place to have dinner.
Since we’ve been told this is a slow time of year, I think you could feel comfortable leaving your beach equipment nearby while you’re having lunch. Take advantage of the new restrooms in this area too.
Note: This beach has a lifeguard year round.
If you’d like to have lunch before setting out on that trek, you will pass a brand new food concession that has just been built. The second floor has a nice restaurant with a chef, offering an expanded menu.
This is, however, a deep beach. But because we have about 4 hours there, there will be no need to quickly rush all the way to the water. You may want to stroll half way there then take a break by resting in your chair for a little while before moving further along. We could hold our club’s first ever “We’re Half-Way There” party at that spot. If everyone came prepared to tell one of their favorite jokes, we could make this a fun brief stop. We also negotiated with the concession staff to reduce their rental price for two lounge chairs and an umbrella from $37 to $25. At this deep beach, that may be well worth considering. Sign up below if interested.
We invite you to join us on October 19 from 8:30-8:30 when we sashay on down to Siesta Key, the home of the World’s finest, whitest sand.
Its smooth texture has been compared to confectioner sugar or talcum powder. Also, because the sand is 99% quartz, it retains no heat. You could lay naked on it during Florida’s hottest month without any discomfort, but let’s not prove that point.
Barefoot Beachcombers Club (‘BBC’ will also suffice)
