Spring is the best time to visit Siesta Key as these months experience temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees with less rainfall than the summer and early fall months.

To Enjoy Ideal Weather

Spring (March-May):  Temperatures between 70 – 80 degrees with minimal rainfall Summer (June – August):   Temperatures between 80 – 90 degrees with increased rainfall Autumn (September – November): Temperatures between 70-80 degrees with steady rainfall Winter (December -February): Temperatures between 60 – 70 degrees with decreased rainfall

Seasonal Weather 

If you are looking for a low-key, quiet, and less populated Siesta Key vacation, then September is your best bet. As the least crowded month, September is also one of the least expensive times to visit Siesta Key.

To Beat The Crowds

In addition to September and other autumn months, June through August will also offer visitors thinner crowds in addition to lower airfare and hotel rates. However, as Siesta Key sees more rainfall, humidity, and much higher temperatures in the summer, it may not be the most comfortable time of year to visit.

To Find the Best Rates

The best time of year to encounter manatees swimming along waterways near Siesta Key are the winter and early spring months. As the temperatures drop, marine animals tend to stay closer to shore and inhabit the shallow waters where it tends to be warmer. Sea turtles, however,  are more easily spotted from May through October during turtle nesting season.

To Increase Your Chance of Wildlife Encounters

No matter what time of year, Siesta Key offers something amazing to enjoy!
