There are two main access roads to access the island, referred to as the north Bridge and south bridge. Siesta Drive connects to the very north section of Siesta Key with a draw bridge, while the Stickney Point Road south bridge connects to the island about 4 miles to the south via a drawbridge. Stickney Point Drive leads beach-goers and residents onto the island which leads to a “T”. Making a left and heading south on the island leads to a quieter Siesta Key experience with less traffic, while a right turn navigates straight into the main public beach area and Siesta Village.
