Siesta Beach is blessed to have some of the cleanest, softest, powdery white sand, on its beaches in the world. The sand, which stretches for miles, consists of 99% quartz giving it that breath-takingly beautiful look and quality. It’s also why you can walk barefooted without scorching your feet, no matter how hot the sun gets. It is where Sarasota goes to the beach along with the rest of the world. The Travel Channel ranks Siesta Key as one of America’s top ten beaches. It was also rated #1 for 2011 in recognition for cleanliness, water quality and safety by Dr. Stephen Leatherman, one of the world’s top expert of the National Healthy Beaches Campaign. It’s no wonder why more than 20,000 visitors choose this 8 mile island as their vacation destination year after year. Come and experience for yourself the feel of our sugar white sand between your toes.
