Siesta Key Florida

Siesta Key is a beautiful barrier island eight miles long just offshore of Sarasota. Siesta Key has 3 amazing white sand beaches - Siesta Beach - Crescent Beach - Turtle Beach (north to south)  Voted one of the top 10 beaches in the world for several years straight and continuing to grow in popularity. This "sleepy" beach town is a true R and R - from the beach to the town, from the sand to the walkways (pedestrian friendly cross walks), from the acoustic music playing from several restaurants to the beach bicycles, and from sun kissed skin to the salty air...Siesta Key is not only one of the BEST BEACHES IN THE WORLD but one of the best destinations. The quartz sands is generated from the quart rich sea floor will waves pulverizing it over and over again and thereby turning it to a fine white powder.  This fine white powder makes the beaches have a cool powdery feeling which is very refreshing against the warm florida sun.  Truly a unique vacation spot AND a unique place in the entire wolrd.   Enjoy the mornings shelling the beach, afternoons with a village stroll or the evening night life island style - Siesta Key has something for every traveler.
