The warmth and sun of Florida is an attraction any time of year. Pack your bags and prepare for fun in the sun, water, and even on land as you check out many of the exciting activities the area has to offer. While the weather may be perfect for the majority of your trip, you’ll want to prepare some activities for times when the weather doesn’t cooperate with your beach and outdoor schedule. There are many “rainy day” activities in Siesta Key to enjoy and pass the time when the weather is gloomy.
Siesta Key Village Shops
Touring a town is a great way to get to know its nooks and crannies as well as the locals. When the sun isn’t shining, that doesn’t mean that the exploration needs to stop, just take it indoors! The charming shops and restaurants found in Siesta Key Village will give you hours of fun, browsing, window shopping, and delicious food to keep your mind off of the pitter-patter of rain outside. You’ll score some great island-themed décor, clothing, and accessories to put on display once you get home and turn your home into an island getaway.
Siesta Key Wine Bar
An activity made especially for the adults of the group is a visit to Siesta Key Wine Bar. The self-billed “home for wine lovers,” the establishment at the north end of Siesta Key Village includes a tasting bar and sitting areas for you to enjoy a glass of terrific wine. The wine bar features local Florida wines, as well as reds, whites, and “bubbles” from across the globe. Visit the wine shop to take home your favorites or arrange to have your favorites shipped to your home. Keep in mind there is limited ability to ship to certain locales and yours may not be available.
While your outdoor relaxation plans may be canceled, that doesn’t mean the relaxation can’t take place indoors. Book yourself some time for rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation at a local spa. Choose from treatments like a mani/pedi, massage, body wrap, facial, and more. Staff will help you create a package just for you so you can fully relax your mind, body, and spirit. Some establishments may offer salon services, so you can get a new cut or style to go with your relaxed mood. Ask about treatments designed especially for the men of the group who need a recharge.
You don’t need to go out on the town for a good time, indoors or out, rain or shine. You can always choose to relax around your Rent Siesta Key vacation rental home. Many rentals include books, a movie library, board games, puzzles, and other indoor activities to keep you busy. Staying right where you are can be just as engaging as a day out touring the town. If you have any personal favorite games from home, make sure they make the packing list so you can enjoy those, too, if the mood strikes.
Lift your spirits as the rain falls with a meal out on the town. There are many restaurants on Siesta Key that will satisfy any hunger or thirst you may have. From a casual lunch or dinner to a special date or celebration, you’ll find something delicious to fit the mood.
If the rain insists on lasting another day, or you’ve worn out all the things to do on-island, take a trip to the mainland for some fun. Sarasota is full of fun, with activities like museums, escape rooms, and aquariums, you’ll find something to do to battle the gloom and continue to enjoy your Florida getaway, no matter what the weather is like.

The warmth and sun of Florida is a major attraction any time of year. Lounging in the sun or splashing around in the water of the Gulf of Mexico is a fun and relaxing way to while away the time on a Florida getaway, but you’ll want to make sure to experience some of the Siesta Key tours and activities the area has to offer. Pack your bags and prepare for fun in the sun, water, and even on land as you check out many of the exciting activities there are to do and see.
If you’re unsure of where to start with the Siesta Key tours and experiencing everything Siesta Key has to offer, hop on the trolley. Save the gas in your rental car for an off-island trip and conserve your own energy for the fun you’ll have at your chosen destination when you take the Siesta Breeze Trolley. Experience fun, free, round-trip service from Siesta Key Village all the way to the southernmost part of the island, with many stops in between. Hop on and off as you spot a new place to go explore.
Head down 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 thrill- and adventure-seekers. 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 these majestic mammals. You’ll see more than dolphins! Keep your eyes open and your camera ready to capture glimpses of manatees, rays, and even whales at certain times of year. Any of these beautiful sea creatures might even come near the boat to swim alongside!
Gain a whole new perspective on where you’ve chosen to spend your time of relaxation and sail high over the water with Parasail Siesta. You’ll take off from the deck of their specially designed and USCG-approved parasailing boat to fly high above the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Reach heights up to 500 feet in the air! Keep watch on the water from your bird’s eye view for dolphins, turtles, manatees, stingrays, and other sea life. You can choose to stay dry throughout the flight or wear your bathing suit for a refreshing dip in the water before flying up again to come down safely on the deck. Bring your waterproof or disposable camera to capture the memories from your in-flight perspective. Parasail Siesta takes several professional digital camera pictures of your flight from the boat’s perspective and will provide you with a memory card at the end of the trip so you can develop your pictures at a later time. Rides are approximately 15 minutes of air time, but the whole excursion duration depends on the number of fliers.
Sunset Electric Bike Tour
Renting a beach cruiser or mountain bike from a bicycle rental company on the island is a great way to get around and add a little daily exercise to your vacation plans. Take a sunset ride to wind down for the evening. For a unique experience, trade that ‘regular’ bicycle for an electric bike! Endless Summer Eco Tours and Rentals offers a sunset electric bike tour of Siesta Key. The bikes have five-level pedal assist and on-demand throttle so you can give yourself as much or as little of a workout as you want as you ride along the shores of Siesta Key past Siesta Beach and Siesta Key Village to Patriot’s Point. Stop and view the flag-lowering ceremony conducted nightly by a local resident. Call out the name of a loved one in the armed forces and hear a bugle rendition of taps. After the ceremony, turn around and head back to the starting point. Book a private tour for your group or join others for a small-group public tour. All skill levels are welcome.

A major part of an island vacation is the sun, sand, and water. Spend some time on the water getting to know a popular water sport. Stand up paddleboarding is an activity the entire group can enjoy. If you’ve never done it before, a lesson with Siesta Key Paddleboards is in order. They offer paddleboard rentals as well as daily lessons at Turtle Beach Park. Once you’re confident in your skills, book a guided tour of various waters around the island, both Sarasota Bay-side and Gulf-side.
If your paddleboard lesson didn’t give you enough time in the sun, sand, and water of Siesta Key, a day – or several – at the beach is bound to make up for it. Pack your beach gear and make the short trip to the beach for some much-needed R&R. Swim in the shimmering waves of the Gulf, stretch out to work on your tan, help the kids of the group build sandcastles.
There are plenty of beach gear rental companies that have the necessities of snorkeling on hand if you want to strike out on your own to explore the underwater world surrounding Siesta Key.

If you’d rather take a tour or trip, Key Life Charters offers an experience like no other. You can even bring your own snacks, including adult beverages. Customize your experience – choose a day of snorkeling, or add on fun like area sightseeing, dolphin and wildlife spotting, and more.
Park the car at your accommodations and gather the group for some exercise and a different way to explore Siesta Key.

Make sure to ask about locks, extra baskets, and safety gear like lights and helmets, and even perks like delivery to your accommodations.
After you’ve walked or biked your way during summer in Siesta Key, hop on the trolley for a different type of transportation.
