If you’re planning a break around the Easter holiday, the perfect spring temperatures of Siesta Key is a wonderful environment for your getaway. The island hosts Easter activities like brunch and Easter egg hunts in addition to many year-round activities to choose from to keep you as busy as you want to be for the entire time you’re here. Whether you’re here with friends or family, an intimate break with your sweetest or enjoying a much-needed family or group reunion, you’ll find something for everyone during Siesta Key Easter.
There are several ways to get around Siesta Key to see and do the things that will create lasting memories for everyone. You could pile everyone in the car and drive around, potentially spending more time in the car driving and hunting for parking than enjoying your vacation, rent bikes, or walk to get to all the sights, nooks, and crannies where cars just won’t fit. Save gas and stay pumped full of energy for the day’s adventures when you take the Siesta Breeze Trolley. The trolley offers free round trip transportation service from Siesta Key Village all the way to the southernmost part of the island, with many stops in between. Travel the length of the island and back or hop off and wander around the various stops.
Head to Siesta Key Marina and you’ll see the many charter boats and cruises that aim to give you a special experience on the waters surrounding Siesta Key. Fishing excursions, snorkeling or SCUBA, and more are available. For something a little less adrenaline-pumping, choose a dolphin cruise. Of course, you can ‘ooh’ and ‘aah’ at dolphins and other marine wildlife safely from the shores of Siesta Key. An up-close look from a chartered tour boat will give you new appreciation for the majestic mammals. You’ll see more than dolphins! Keep your eyes open for manatees, rays, and even whales – they use the warmer waters of Florida during mating season. Any of these beautiful sea creatures might even come near the boat to swim alongside!
April air temperatures can get as high as the 80s, but water temperatures in the low 70s may still be too cool for some to enjoy the water for long. Enjoy the warmer air and cool sea breezes while you sail high over the water. Parasail Siesta offers parasailing experiences to the residents and vacationers of Siesta Key. You’ll take off from their specially designed and U.S. Coast Guard-approved parasailing boat and fly as 500 feet over the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. You’ll have a bird’s eye view of dolphins, manatees, stingrays, turtles, and many other species of sea life. You can choose to take off and land without getting wet, or dip down in the water momentarily before rising back up to come down safely onto the boat deck. Rides are approximately 15 minutes. You can bring your waterproof or disposable camera to capture all the memories from your point of view, from take-off to landing, but the company also takes several professional digital camera photos and will provide you with a memory card so you can develop pictures at your leisure once you reach shore.
If your vacation plans don’t include cooking an Easter meal, several of the many restaurants of Siesta Key offer Easter brunch or dinner. You’ll love mouth-watering meals prepared by the many and varied culinary talents the island has to offer. As about reservations and dietary restrictions like gluten-free, as special holiday meals may have limited offerings.
Sunrise Church Services
Greet Easter morning at a sunrise church service. The island’s churches offer indoor services, but for an Easter service like no other, check out the Siesta Beach Sunrise Service. The island tradition takes place at Siesta Key Beach near the pavilion and is hosted by Pine Shores Presbyterian Church. Bring a beach blanket or chairs. Contact the church for more information.
