About Siesta Key Beach....
While most beaches elsewhere are made up mostly
of coral, Siesta Beach's sand is 99% quartz. Thus, even on the
hottest days, the sand is so reflective that it feels cool underfoot.
It's estimated that the sand on Siesta Beach is millions of years
old, and started in the Appalachians and flowed down the rivers
and was eventually deposited on the shores of Siesta Key.
Soft, white sand on the beach area leading to a firm shore line which is suitable for jogging or just relaxing in the gentle rolling waves are all yours on your own private beach.
Shallow water depth in the near shore area together with our shallow, expansive sandbars, makes this one of the safest beaches for both childresn and adults.
