Which is more “carribean” - Sarasota’s beaches or Miami’s?

Thank you.

Miami Beach’s water is closer to the Caribbean. That being said, I prefer the overall vibe of Siesta Key in Sarasota to Miami Beach.

Having lived in the bahamas, the gulf coast is closer than miami beach (the water notwithstanding).

The Keys and Gasparilla island in particular.

I see little resemblance of our beaches to the Caribbean beaches. However, since a large segment of Dade County's population, including Miami Beach came from the Caribbean Basin's nations, there is a huge cultural and culinary influence present
