Siesta Sands


 

Siesta Sands

When it comes to the best vacation places in the country, Siesta Key definitely has the best reviews in any travel magazine. What is great about this holiday destination is the fact that it is just an hour away from Tampa and a few minutes away from downtown Sarasota. Because of this, city folks won’t have any problem reaching the island during long weekends or virtually whenever they feel like they need a break from the urban jungle.

Siesta Key’s fame has a lot to do with its three beaches. This barrier island has a triumvirate of beaches, all of which have distinct charms. For instance, Siesta Key Public Beach is the most popular of the three. This stretch of sand has actually been proclaimed as the best beach in the entire country for 2011 by Dr. Beach. With a sand composition of almost pure quartz, walking on this beach’s shores feels like walking on fine sugar.

The two other beaches in the island are not as famous as Siesta Key Public Beach, but they are just as striking. Crescent Beach is a favorite among snorkelers and divers. This is because the southern tip of Crescent Beach is where Point of Rocks is located. Point of Rocks is a known diving site which harbors a beautiful coral formation which is inhabited by many species of tropical fishes. On the other hand, Turtle Beach has coarser sand quality which makes it suitable for shell collecting. In fact, it is normal to find petrified shark teeth in Turtle Beach’s shores after a storm.

Vacationers, particularly those who adore the beach, find it difficult to leave Siesta Key. In fact, this island has thousands of permanent and temporary residents. Those who are interested in investing in Siesta Key real estate should check out Siesta Sands at 1001 Point of Rocks Road. Built in 1988, this community has a total of 25 condo units.
