Tour other world-class beaches.

Within a few miles of Siesta Key, you will find other world-class beaches such as  St. Pete Beach, Clearwater Beach and North Jetty Beach on Casey Key.

North Jetty Beach, at the south end of Casey Key, is a lush secluded island on Florida’s west coast.  There are no traffic lights. It's a slow pace of life and a step back in time. This is where the rich and famous go to relax.

Novelist Stephen King has a home on Casey Key worth approximately $25 million. The island is said to resemble a 1950's Florida community so much so that in 1984, film director Victor Nunez  used Casey Key as a backdrop to film the movie "A Flash of Green."
North Jetty Park Beach has shaded picnic sites, a play area, and is a popular spot for surfing and fishing.
