Siesta Key near Sarasota, named the one of the most beautiful beaches by Trip Advisor.

Honored by having ‘the softest sand known to man’, Siesta Key Public Beach has made TripAdvisor’s list of ’10 most breathtaking beaches’ in the country.

It’s no wonder this beach made the list. The fine white sand is made of 99 percent pure quartz and it feels and looks almost like flour. The sheer width of the beach is breathtaking.
