Siesta is a beautiful beach. A large drum circle forms on Sundays at sunset. All are welcome to bring a pickle barrel and a wooden spoon and join in. Belly dancers usually hop around in the middle. It is quite the crowd to watch, even if you don't bring something to bang on.

Powdery white sand that almost feels like talcum powder. Large Beach area with restrooms. Parking is sometimes a problem especially in season

Wow. This is the perfect beach in the U.S. Once you step onto the sand and get closer yo the water you know this is something special. If you go during the summer it is less crowded and the water can reach the high 80'sF.
There is no smoking at this beach. Do yourself a favor and visit. Perfect. Bring an umbrella for shade and a blanket to put on the most amazing sand anywhere.i
