Just south of Siesta’s public beach is “Crescent” beach. Crescent beach has the same crystal white sand and turquoise waters like Siesta but it is a private beach area from the high water mark to the land.
Crescent beach is fronted by condominium projects and beach resorts who may (or not) allow beach weddings on “Their” section of Crescent beach-front. In other words, couples need to seek out beach resorts that also allow wedding ceremonies on their part of Crescent beach, unfortunately most don’t.

Many regulars ( folks who live here year round ) prefer Turtle beach because it’s less crowded and you can be sure to get a parking spot the first time around the lot.
Turtle beach is 2.8 miles south of Siesta key’s Stickney Point bridge and directly across the street from Turtles Restaurant, (Gee, I wonder where it got the name from).
