Siesta Key beach earns the number one spot in the Annual Top 10 Beaches in the United States by Dr. Beach, Dr. Stephen Leatherman, for the second time in 7 years. No stranger to prestigious beach awards, Siesta Key also toped the list in 2011 and has been a constant on the Top 10 Beaches in the United States for many years, last year taking the 2nd. This continual increase in recognition for the beach is largely attributed to its powdery, white sand made up of crystal quartz which keeps the sand cool even on the sunniest Florida day. Unlike most beaches, when the Siesta Key sand is packed near the water’s edge, you can easily jog, ride your bike or push a stroller. Siesta Key has been a staple for locals and vacationing guests alike for its pristine conditions, easy access and complimentary amenities. Along with these qualities, Dr. Beach noted Siesta Key’s continued presence on his rankings due also to its first-rate beach safety for visitors, recent parking and entrance additions (including a large playground area) and the clean restrooms. Siesta beach, he mentioned in a public announcement by Visit Sarasota County Thursday morning, is an outstanding place to watch the sun dip below the Gulf of Mexico horizon – it is a sight unlike any other.

Dr. Beach bases his selection each year on a 50 criteria process, including water and sand quality, as well as facilities and environmental management, as part of the National Healthy Beaches Campaign (NHBC). The NHBC is dedicated to creating a balance between the recreational use of our nation’s beaches and maintaining the environmental quality and safety of this prized resource.
