What you'll do

You'll trek to a secluded beach spot (weather permitting) near Siesta Key (voted USA's #1 Beach!) This spot is very peaceful and never crowded! It is narrow, shelly, and pristine. To get there, a little adventurousness is required: you'll have to walk on a (short, firm) concrete seawall, then wade through shallow water (possibly waist-deep, depending on the tide). You'll have plenty of time to bathe in the calm, pool-like ocean, walk over semi-submersed mossy rocks in the sea, find some of the most beautiful shells, and (if you're a little luckier) spot families of manatees gliding by! You will have the option to either join a tranquil, unassuming Mindfulness Meditation session (+ stretching) or just keep exploring the area. The rocks provide a great place of exploration for kids and nature lovers, with spectacular micro and macro marine life! The rocks are flat, smooth, and a little bit slippery in some places; a beach towel to relax is suggested; water sandals with good grip are highly recommended.

Where you'll be

We'll go on a short wet-trekking adventure to secluded stretches of beach around Siesta Key, where you'll have plenty of time to bathe in the calm, pool-like ocean. However, depending on the weather, we could explore a slightly different version on the #1 beach in the USA. Getting there requires wading through a short, rocky stretch of ocean water for ~5 minutes (water sandals are highly recommended to protect your feet).

Guest safety

Outdoor activities carry risks, and you may be exposed to dangerous situations as part of this experience. Make sure you can participate safely given your abilities and the conditions (such as location, weather, and equipment).

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be canceled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside of the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 10 guests ages 3 and up can attend. Parents may also bring children under 2 years of age. Beach is shelly, rocky and narrow. Going on the stairs that lead to private property is strictly prohibited. You'll have to walk on a short seawall to get…

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

What to bring

Sunscreen, beach towel to bask in the sun. Highly recommended (especially during the ~5-minute hike in rocky water): water sandals with a good grip.

More tips

Parking is usually very limited (an alleyway with 20 parking spaces). Best way to get there is by the local trolley, Lyft/Uber, bike or walking. It's a water hike, you'll get soaking wet! Bring sunscreen, beach towel to relax.
