Siesta Beach has the best sand! It is white so it doesn't get hot and it is very soft. Loved walking on it. It just felt so good on my feet. I can't wait to go there again.

We went over Christmas break. The sand was absolutely gorgeous. Our rental was a short walk from the beach. The only thing I missed was not having access to a bar/pub on the beach :)
