    Had to be the best of the U.S. in 2011! Great waves and nice sand. Sadly, it's far from my house.

    THIS IS THE BEST BEACH IN THE WORLD! The weather is always balmy breezy, There are awesome restaurants a beach walk away. The sand doesn't ever burn your feet. And they just added new parking!

    Praia muito bonita, mas não sei se merece o título de the best of USA. Chegue cedo para pegar um lugar próximo do mar. Areia e água claríssimas ! Ótima infraestrutura para passar o dia !

    It’s all about the sand at Siesta Beach, on a barrier island in Sarasota County. The sand is 99% pure quartz, so the Gulf Coast beach stays cool even on the hottest days.

  • Guy M.

    Soft white sand! But hard to find parking and it's crowded. Turtle beach a little south has fewer people.

    The white soft cool sand. This beach is beautiful. Very wide so be prepared to walk to find a spot near the water. It's usually pretty busy.

    Lovely laid back place. Has a sand bar that allows you to go pretty far out and the waves hit the bar first.

    Amazing cool sand. The color of the water is so beautiful, no waves and a place where you can park your car and take a shower afterwards. What else could you ask for?

    Natasha Lueders Graf · August 29, 2014
  • Rita V.

    One of the nicest beaches in the US with white quartz sand that doesn't get hot! Watch for dolphins right off shore and occasional manatees...

    This is a gorgeous FL beach. No doubt about it. But it is NOT the best beach in FL. Gulf Islands National Seashore as well as Captiva Island are higher on my list.
