“Best Public Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

This is the best public beach in the USA. The sand never gets hot to the touch (actually crushed quartz) and is as soft as baby powder. The other amentities available are everthing you would expect of a great public beach. In addition the beach is totally non-smoking which is great if you sensitive or have kids.

“The Best Pure Beach Anywhere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

Powdery, white sand beach that never feels hot. Sand is like sugar with very few shells or other debris. Parking can be tough on weekends or in high season, but this beach is worth a little parking search. I've been to other supposedly beautiful "white" sand beaches in the Caribbean or the South Pacific, but they do NOT compare with Siesta Key Beach. We only have to drive 25 minutes to get there -- lucky us!

“Gorgeous beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

Great parking, beautiful sand! I only wish they had a small dog beach. We didn't try the food and beer concessions, but it was nice that they were there.

“Beach Bliss”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

I have been going to Siesta Beach for two decades. It has 99% quartz sand which gives it a blinding white appearance. It also allows the sand to stay cool to the feet even in 90 degree plus heat. The bath facilities are nice and the bar and food are great. Get there early to secure free parking. The beach is wide and expansive and the white sand lets the water really take on great colors.
