    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?

    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.

    The sand is wonderful, almost like powdered sugar. Be prepared to have it EVERYWHERE. Totally worth it though. Also, watch out for the sea gulls...they're dangerous if you have food...

    Named the top beach in America for many years, Siesta Key features powder-like white quartz sand and a crystal blue coastline. Mediterranean-like weather too. Great venue for family vacations.
