Turtle Beach Weddings – Dream Beach Weddings

Dream Beach Wedding locations are settling in with the sea life at Turtle Beach! Turtle Beach is located just south of Siesta Key and offers a stretch of tranquil shoreline and blue/green water. Turtle Beach Weddings are geared toward slightly smaller weddings, with a quiet and peaceful feel. Free parking, less crowds, and turtle sightings make Turtle Beach inviting to beach goers and couples alike.

 

Places to Stay:

Fisherman’s Cove: You can check in here and call it a week! Rent a boat, go paddle boarding or kayaking, sit back and relax. This resort does require a 7 night minimum stay, but if you consider it you wedding and honeymoon, it’s well worth the time off! Steps to the beach, wake up to the sights and sounds of the gulf, and watch the sunset from your balcony.

AirBnB: We love the various beach cottages available for rent in the Sarasota Area. So if you’re less of a resort seeker and more of a homey-kinda-feel check out some of the fun beachside spots.

 

Things to Do:

“Quiet, less crowded, great sunsets.” Those are just a few of the Trip Advisor headlines you’ll find describing Turtle Beach. The list of entertainment is pretty much non-existent. Except for the entertaining beauty of nature. Go shelling, keep your eyes out for turtles, and recharge with a swim in the gulf.

Siesta Trolley, Inc.: Get a new perspective of the Siesta Key area with a trolley ride! You can even rent a trolley for your wedding day!

 

Places to Eat:

As we mentioned, the beauty and tranquility of Turtle Beach means not a whole lot going on, and we mean that in the best way. So for day beach trips, it’s best to pack a cooler as you won’t find restaurants and dining in the heart of Turtle Beach. However, just a couple of miles from Siesta Key which has many options.
