The Siesta Key Beach is a long strip of beach area in Sarasota, Florida. It is considered as one of the top reasons why people actually go to the city of Sarasota.

Also commonly referred to as the Siesta Beach, the Siesta Key Beach is famous for its white sand beaches. According to Harvard University?s geology department, the sand in the area is made up of 99% of pure quartz. This means that unlike other beaches in the world, the sand here is pure white and even finer than most refined sugar. It is described as ?dazzling? and it never feels hot. This fact allowed the site to win several awards like the Great International Beach Challenge?s whitest and finest sand in the world, the Travel Channel?s Best Sand Beach in America, and Dr. Beach?s Best Beach in America.
