Turtle Beach Resort and Inn sits on the lagoon that overlooks Turtle Beach on the very south end of Siesta Key, Sarasota, Florida.There is Turtles Restaurant and Turtle Beach Pub all in walking distance.
Siesta Key is one of the prominent locations for the sea turtle’s during nesting season. Turtle Nesting season: May 1-Oct. 3.1 Local nests are monitored closely by Mote Marine Laboratory’s Sea Turtle Patrol, a group of Mote scientists, interns and more than 250 volunteers who monitor nesting each day during nesting season on 35 miles of Sarasota County beaches. This most recent season ended on a high note with the highest nest count in nine years for loggerhead sea turtles and a record-breaking count for green sea turtles in Sarasota County. Turtle Beach is also known for the most beautiful sunsets on the island and you can walk for miles straight down to Casey Key. Many of our guests take the kayaks and canoes and paddle down to “Secret Beach” for private picnics and eco tourism.
