A boat launch is across the street, as well as Coquina BayWalk at Leffis Key where pathways lead visitors through the mangroves and lagoons.

At the southern end of Siesta Key is Turtle Beach, Florida. The sand is not as white or fine, but due to that, the shelling is better. Turtle Beach is a fairly quiet beach shere a family can appreciate the solitude. You'll find picnic tables, pavilions with grills, ample parking, and playground equipment.
