Siesta Key; Sarasota Florida

 

Written and photographed by Gary Wonning

Please click on the photos for additional photographs of the area.

Siesta Key Beach located on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico in Sarasota Florida is often referred to as the best beach in the United States.

With its crystal quartz white sand and two miles of pristine coastline, it isn’t hard to see why it has earned that distinction. Add to that the fact that Florida receives over three hundred days of sunshine yearly, and the temperature rarely dips below sixty and you have a formula for paradise. 

Siesta Key Beach

The beach seems to go along forever with puffy white clouds floating aimlessly above. 

Sea oats and other  sea life is frequently seen on the beach and shallow waters of the gulf.

An abandoned pier highlights the northern boundary of the beach, leaving one to wonder what came here before.
