    Gumbo Limbo Vacation Rentals sits right across from Siesta Key Public Beach.
    Great location and very close to our "Village" for shopping and dining.

    What can I say? It was rated the NUMBER ONE beach in the United States which includes all of the beaches in Hawaii.

  • Siesta Beach

    Siesta Beach is the number one beach in the 21st annual Top 10 Beach List, produced by coastal expert Dr. Stephen P. Leatherman, Director of Florida International University’s Laboratory for Coastal Research.

    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 Beach are normally measured in inches and the beach gradually slopes into the Gulf waters, making it a very safe area for children.

    This beach park is complete with showers and bathrooms, snack bars, grills, picnic tables, shade trees, and a large parking area, which does fill up on summer weekends. Siesta Beach is a smokeless beach, earning extra points for cleanliness and environmental management. My favorite time to visit is after Labor Day when things have calmed down, and the water is still warm enough for swimming until November. Snowbirds from northern climes call this area home during the winter because of the great weather. The beaches are for exploring, but not swimming at this time of year, albeit I have been in the water as early as March.

    Parking is a nightmare and there are way less fish, birds, etc. than at Nokomis Beach. BUT, the sand is a geological marvel (99.9% pure quartz) and Siesta Beach was named "Best Beach in America" by Dr. Beach (Dr. Stephen Leatherman) in 2011, so you pretty much have to see it at least once.

    Siesta Key Beach is central Sarasota's gateway to the sparkling waters of the Gulf of Mexico, an island that combines luxurious amenities with a relaxed vibe that appeals to both visitors and locals. Siesta Key Beach with its glorious white sand was ranked number one in America in 2011 by Dr. Beach.

    The sand is as white and pristine as it looks in this photo. You can walk for miles and miles on the beach, swim in the wonderful ocean, play beach volleyball or soccer, relax and enjoy your surroundings and so much more. Each Sunday night there is the Drumming Circle. On certain nights you can go and observe the stars with a local Observatory Group. In the morning there are fitness groups who exercise on the sand.

    Repeatedly voted one of the top ten beaches in the USA, known for its quartz sand. Go on Sunday evenings at sunset for beach circle activities!

    Always in the top 3 beaches in America. We were number 1 a few years ago. The sand is like powdered sugar, and the water looks like you are in the Bahamas.
