“Miles and Miles”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

Miles of miles of sugar white and powdery soft sand with views that dreams are made of. I'm sure in season it is hard to find parking. We were there in off season and had no problem parking and enjoying. Sun-sational.

“Where the sand and sun meet the gulf of Mexico.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

The strip of white sand called Siesta Key beach along the Southwest coast of Florida was named "The best beach in America". Why? It simply is the nicest white sand beach you will ever see, You will be surrounded by expansive white sand, tall palm trees and swaying sea oats.You will see sea gulls, pelicans and dolphins at play. Whether you just set and relax,swim in the warm Gulf waters or stroll along at your own pace this is the place to be. If you take the family or you are seeking the night life in the village, there is something for everyone. There are great restaurants, bars and beaches all over Siesta Key. If you have never been to the west coast of Florida do yourself a favor and make Siesta key and Sarasota you next Florida vacation stop. When you get Siesta Key sand in your shoes you might not want to go home.See you at the beach.

“Gorgeous beach, truly magical place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Siesta Key beach is like no other beach we have been to, we live just 2 hours away and this is the only beach where the sand is 99% quarts making it sugar white, super soft and cooler than the sand at other nearby beaches. The water is great, lots of ocean birds to watch and the best sunset I have ever seen. We stayed there all day and didn't want to leave. There where lots of natural pools filled with small fish. If you are going to one beach in Florida this should be it!

“Excellent beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

I did not see facilities? Other than that, and a little garbage seen around, a beautiful place! What a sunset!! Pack a cooler with a beverage, and a couple of beach chairs! Priceless!

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Beautiful beach. Sand is 99% quartz so it is soft as baby powder and does not retain heat. The water is a pretty azure. Need I say more? This is a paradise.
