Siesta Key Visitor Center is located in Siesta Village Plaza in the heart of Siesta Key Village.
Siesta Key is accurately and affectionately known as “Sarasota’s Favorite Island.” Eight miles long, our crescent-shaped barrier island is easily accessible for visitors traveling either north or south. From one end of Siesta Key to the other, one can experience our vibrant island lifestyle.
Two drawbridges connect Siesta Key to the mainland. The south bridge, on Stickney Point Road, leads directly to Interstate 75. As one travels east from the Key, Stickney Point Road becomes Clark Road (State Road 72). The north bridge, on Siesta Drive, links the Key to routes leading into downtown Sarasota as well as to the east. Access to both southern and northern corridor areas is convenient from Tamiami Trail (US 41). Both bridges span the Intracoastal Waterway. Vehicle and pedestrian traffic are stopped during bridge openings which allow large marine vessels to navigate through the waterway. This also gives travelers a few quiet moments to enjoy the views.
