Siesta Beach is a beach located on Siesta Key in the U.S. state of Florida. Unlike beaches elsewhere that are made up mostly of pulverized coral, Siesta Beach's sand is 99% quartz, most of which comes from the Appalachian Mountains
Voted #1 best beach in the U.S. The sand is so fine and the water is so clear. There's a playground and you can BBQ there as well. We leave our beach chairs , umbrella, beach toys, volleyball ETC. They are in the garage. Feel free to grab and make sure you wash the sand out when you return. :) …
Voted #1 Best Beach, but the best part is on Sunday evening there is a fun Beach Drum Circle, with music, performers and dancers on the beach with a large crowd gathering to enjoy music, great weather and most amazing sunset. Get there around 4PM until sunset, then stroll around in the village.
2 hours away but rated #2 beach in USA! Several beaches here with white powder sand and a great little town to visit for dining and shopping
