Siesta Key's Famous White Sand Beach
It's estimated that the sand on Siesta Beach is millions of years old; it started in the Appalachians, flowed down the rivers and was eventually deposited on the shores of Siesta Key. Located on Beach Road, Siesta Key Beach has received recognition for being a top-rated beach as well as for having the "whitest and finest sand in the world." Unlike beaches elsewhere that are made up mostly of coral, Siesta Beach's sand is 99% quartz. Even on the hottest days, the sand is so reflective that it feels cool underfoot.
