[edit] Siesta Key Beach

Siesta Key Beach has sand that is 99% pure quartz, soft and cool on the feet. It has earned the following titles:

It is estimated that the sand on Siesta Beach and Crescent Beach on Siesta Key is millions of years old, having its origin in the Appalachians and flowing down the rivers from the mountains until it eventually was deposited on the shores of Siesta Key. Shallow water depth in the near shore area together with year round lifeguard protection, makes this one of the safest beaches in the area.
