Exploring Paradise with a Day Trip to Siesta Key Beach and Siesta Key Village in Sarasota, Florida

If you've found your way to Sarasota, Florida - I might guess it's because a stop at Siesta Key Beach is on your bucket list.  It's no surprise since this paradise is ranked the #2 Beach in the U.S. in 2023 by TripAdvisor’s Traveler’s Choice Awards™.

Siesta Key Beach Sarasota

Nestled on the stunning Gulf Coast, Siesta Key Beach boasts pristine white sands, crystal-clear turquoise waters, and breathtaking sunsets that will leave you speechless.  Unlike beaches elsewhere that are made up mostly of pulverized coral, Siesta Beach's sand is 99% quartz which is what provides that super soft texture.  

Siesta Key Beach Sarasota 

On my first visit, my jaw dropped not only because of the soft sand but also because of the 'amount' of it.  From the start of this white sand filled beach to the point where you actually touch the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico is quite a distance.  There's no shortage of places to throw your blanket and umbrella!  Side note:  HOT HOT sand - be careful!
