Siesta Key is known for beautiful beaches made from 99% pure quartz. Millions of years old, this sand flowed from the Appalachian Mountains, traveling southward until it was eventually deposited on the shores of Siesta Key. Our sand is so white and so reflective that even on the hottest days, it feels cool underfoot. As quartz crystal is a natural conductor of energy, the holistic community believes that our soft white sand maximizes the body’s ability to heal both physically and emotionally. Shallow water depth near the shore makes it one of the safest beaches in the country and great for small children.
Each of Siesta Key’s four main areas has their own distinct character and charm: Siesta Beach, Crescent Beach, Turtle Beach and Siesta Key Village.
