Dr. Beach names Siesta Beach #1
The Number One Beach in the World is a hop and a skip from Englewood, North Port and Port Charlotte 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.

Snowbirds from northern climes call this area home during the winter because of the great...read more
