Stunning Sarasota holidays 2021

Nestled into Florida’s lesser-explored west coast, Sarasota is located around an hour south of the well-known city of Tampa. A dazzling white stretch of sand, turquoise ocean and tree-covered coastal islands, its tourist board promotes ‘beaches and beyond’; it’s a fitting description indeed for a place that is about to serve up a wholly unique 2021 holiday experience.

Visitors embark on holidays in Sarasota for the sun, sand and sea, yet there’s so much more to this fascinating Gulf of Mexico destination. Enjoying a tantalising subtropical climate, Sarasota is known for its long, hot summers and mild winters. And with its range of cultural, beachfront and sports activities for young and old travellers alike, holidays in Sarasota are tailored to please. The city and its surrounding areas present a large selection of accommodation to suit all budgets and requirements. Whichever you choose, you’ll never be too far from the city’s great selection of restaurants, bars and shops.

Your guide to Sarasota holidays

Time to explore
Top attractions

Top attractions

From art museums to farmer’s markets, aquariums to river kayaking, holidays in Sarasota are never a dull affair. Get a true sense of Florida’s incredible wildlife as you head out on a nature trail in the Myakka State Park. Here you’ll get to see deer, raccoon, lizards and various birds of prey roaming around their natural habitat, with treetop walkways, river boats and lookout towers offering panoramic views of the spectacular surroundings.

For something a little cultured you could head to the Ringling Museum, a beautiful mansion house on the coast that’s home to an array of contemporary art, or for the sporting types the Bobby Jones golf club is open to all with no membership required. Historic Downtown Venice is a breath of fresh air against Florida’s backdrop of strip malls, a unique collection of boutiques, independent shops and great restaurants, all against a Mediterranean-inspired backdrop. Don’t forget to check out the farmers’ market on Saturdays.

Beaches

Beaches

Its main stretch may be a built up urban area, but it’s on the six islands lining the Sarasota coastline that the true beauty of the area’s beaches shines through. Each reveals a different personality, natural delights and recreational goings on. Indulge in the peace and quiet of Siesta Key and its endless, unspoilt white sands. Take the kids down to Nokomis beach and trawl through the pretty shells in search of the best ones to take home, or get down with nature on the boardwalks and walking trails at Venice’s Caspersen beach. Relax and unwind down at Manasota beach or for a spot of seclusion, Longboat Key is the place for you.

Whilst some areas may be a little quiet, there are plenty of food and drink options at both Lido and Longboat keys. Columbia restaurant and Café Europe at St. Armand’s Circle have plenty of outdoor seating and menus to suit all appetites.
