As you step onto Siesta Key beach, the sugar-white sand instantly caresses your tired feet. It is so soft, it feels like you’re walking on a cloud. “Ha! Ha! Ha!” you hear seagulls laugh in a distance. “Swoosh, swoosh!” – the waves wash ashore one after another. You breathe in the salty air and your worries melt away. You close your eyes and feel the sensations in your body. The warm sun softly touches your skin. The breeze keeps playing in your hair. You open your eyes and colors become even brighter. The sand is even whiter and the turquoise water reflects the deep blue sky. You go dip into the water to cool off, it feels so good. You get your hair wet. You lick your salty lips. The water is so clear, you see schools of fish pass you by. Then all of a sudden, you see huge pelicans dive for fish right near you. You admire their dive-bombing precision to catch their late lunch.
You come out of the water. The soft breeze completely rejuvenates you. You feel so energized.
In 2012, Siesta Key was rated #1 best beach in the country by Dr. Beach for its white sand that consists of 99% pure quartz. The public beach has a picnic area in the tree shade, volleyball nets and tennis courts. Siesta Key is a true paradise if you wish to relax or take on sports such as sailing, wind-surfing or parasailing.
