America's Best Beach

Siesta Beach, Sarasota, Florida

This is what happens when people discover you have the “Best Beach in the USA.”  They come cover it up and make phone calls.  Hang on. Who says it’s the best, and who made them an authority?  Well Dr. Beach of course!  Yes, there is a Dr. Beach, Stephen P. Leatherman, Director of Florida International University’s Laboratory for Coastal Research.

This is what the doctor says…”Siesta Beach in Sarasota boasts that it has the finest and whitest sand in the world, and I cannot argue with this claim; the powdery sand is nearly pure quartz crystal.  The beautiful blue-colored water is clean and clear, making it so inviting to bathers and swimmers.  The beach is hundreds of yards wide, attracting volleyball players and beachcombers as well as those who just want to find their place in the sun.  Waves at Siesta Key Beach are normally measured in inches and the beach gradually slopes into the Gulf waters, making it very safe area for children.” Consumer Traveler, May 31, 2011

I actually prefer Lido Beach on Lido Key in Sarasota, FL – mainly because it’s closer to my home.
