Siesta Key Beach

The Beach is Absolutely Fantastic!

Siesta Key Beach has been nationally recognized for its beautiful beach. In addition to Travel Channel’s recognition as “Best Sand Beach in America 2004”, Dr. Beach rated Siesta Key #2 in “America’s Best Beaches 2009”. Our beach is made of 99% pure quartz, the sand is soft, clean, and pure white. Not only is the sand sugar-soft, but it is also cool to the touch. The beach itself is expansive, and enhances the beauty of the aqua-marine waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

The New York Times reports "Siesta Key is becoming more popular in hotter months as tourists discover its powdered-sugar white sand that seems always to stay cool, no matter how high the heat outside."
