White sand fun. Parking is available by luck. The parking lots are a distance from the water, so one must walk over the sand or use one of the sand wheelchairs available in the parking lots. It is worth the effort to enjoy the beauty...More

Along with the likes of Daytona, Fort Lauderdale, Miami and Clearwater, Siesta Beach is apparently the best beach in the US/world but it is unique for its white, talc like, mineral rich sand that never gets too hot to walk on, regardless of the weather,...More

Took my grandkids and family for swimming, Bird watching, and fabulous sunset! We had an amazing time . I found out you really do float in the salty water. Pelican Bird's are stunning creature's. Salty sea water yuck!

This is the one of the most beautiful beaches me and my wife have been to the sand is white and soft to the feet. There is plenty of parking. I will definitely visit this beach again.

Great soft white beach but parking is hard to find. I was there to see the Sand Sculpture Festival Nov. 10-13, 2017. Amazing sculptures - about 50 of them - along with a live band.

Visited this beautiful beach several times during our vacation. The sand is amazingly fine and so white. Get down to see the breathtaking sunset if you can which is breathtaking.

Beautiful sand and clear water. Great for walking, biking, making sand castles, whatever you dream! Pelicans and seagulls catching the fish all day. Not the best for shelling but a lot of small ones.

The sea water is lovely. It’s been warm-ish. Some reports saw it at 79 degrees. The beach is pretty clear of debris, did see a bit of seaweed come ashore in the morning but it’s not much. Overall beautiful. As for the... More
