About Us

Right on the sandy beach, The Sandbox has the best of it all. It is like small town USA combined with one of the top beaches in the world.

The village offers something for everyone. For the kids there is the Big Olaf’s Ice cream parlor, and the Beach Bazaar. For the young adults there is music and dancing at many village establishments, and for everyone there’s all the above plus some fine dining and neat shops. It doesn’t take long to find yourself fitting right in to this laid back life.

Proprietors Arlene and Roger Esslinger first came to Siesta Key in 1994. They found the Sandbox in 1998 and have been sitting on it’s patio with friends and guests ever since. This clears your mind and soul and shows one the important things in life. We would love to share our space with you if the sun, the sand, and fresh air turn you on like it does us... come and join us.

The SandBox continues to host the nicest people . . . folks vacationing from all over the world . . . new guests and guests returning year after year.
While bringing your family, let us know if you want to BRING YOUR DOG !

So, please join us to celebrate the sand, sun and the sea. Watch the dolphins with us at the SANDBOX ON THE BEACH. We'll see you at sunset . . . our favorite time of the day.
