Have you buried you toes in our world famous sand lately? There’s nothing like it! Whenever I ask visitors, what’s your favorite thing about Siesta Key beach; I usually get “the sand!” That white, fine, powdery, sand! People are always in awe of its beauty! Can you imagine the time it took to become that texture? From quartz to sand… It reminds me of flour or confectionary sugar. I heard it originated from the Appalachian Mountains. The sand grains were carried by rivers into the Gulf and along the shore of Florida. We are lucky to have such amazing sand, and it’s cool to the touch even when it’s hot out. There’s only one problem… if you’re here on vacation, our beautiful, pristine sand will be calling you back time and time again!
If you’re from SK, then you’re lucky to live by our world famous beach!
