What is the Best Beach in Sarasota?

Not only is Siesta Key the best beach in Sarasota, it’s quite possibly the best beach in the nation!

Siesta Key Beach is constantly winning accolades from big news publications and travel companies worldwide! The incredible characteristics of the sand and surrounding environment makes Siesta Key a consistent contender for the top beaches to visit in the country.

The sand is 99% pure quartz, soft and cool on the feet.

Siesta Beach is located on Beach Road on Siesta Key. Siesta Beach is known as one of the most beautiful beaches anywhere in the world.  At the “Great International White Sand Beach Challenge” held in 1987, it was recognized as having the “whitest and finest sand in the world.”

Unlike beaches elsewhere that are made up mostly of pulverized coral, Siesta Beach’s sand is 99% quartz. Even on the hottest days, the sand is so reflective that it feels cool underfoot. It’s estimated that the sand on Siesta Beach and Crescent Beach on Siesta Key is millions of years old, having its origin in the Appalachians and flowing down the rivers from the mountains until it eventually was deposited on the shores of Siesta Key.

Shallow water depth in the near shore area together with year round lifeguard protection, makes this one of the safest beaches in the county and great for small children. Siesta Key, Crescent Beach, Siesta Beach and Turtle Beach are accessible from the North Bridge at Siesta Drive or the South Bridge at Stickney Point Road. Siesta Key is an eight mile barrier island graced with two more beaches, Crescent Beach and Turtle Beach… as well as exotic flowers, magnificent banyan trees and preserved mangrove shores where ibis, snowy egrets and herons claim refuge for their young.

Just a few of the honors Siesta Key has received:
