Siesta's fine white sands, unlike any other beach sands, are composed of 99% pure quartz, which stays cool even on a hot sunny day.  

Siesta Beach was designated in 2011 as the best beach in America by "Dr. Beach" and in 2015 ranked as No. 1 Beach in America, by TripAdvisor's Traveler's Choice Awards. It has also earned a reputation as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
