These three spring breakers from Centerville, OH have been soaking up the sun and light Gulf breeze on Siesta Beach for a combined six consecutive years. Kay Tompkins 17, Kristina Orlando 17, and Rachel Mount 18, were extremely happy to get away and take a break from their studies.
These high school spring breakers from Cincinnati Ohio could not bear to be without their lacrosse sticks even on gorgeous Siesta Beach. They were excited to learn that not long ago Siesta Beach hosted the first Beach lacrosse tournament in America. Kiley Byrne 15, Julia Lind 16, Ellie Feld 15, and Lily Ehemann 16 of Cincinnati Ohio.

More than 400 female athletes from 35 colleges from across the country gathered on spectacular Siesta Beach for the Seventh Annual Fiesta on Siesta Collegiate Volleyball Tournament, the largest collegiate sand volleyball competition in the United States. Now that it's an official NCAA sport, its popularity and growth has been substantially boosted. The soft, powdery white sand of Siesta Beach makes Sarasota the ideal location to host this rapidly growing sport.
USA Volleyball also held its Florida tryouts for the National HP program in connection with this event.
