Siesta Key is a beautiful beach and location to visit. It is a very diverse place with all sorts of people from poor to very wealthy. The sunsets on Siesta Key are by far the best in the world, with the sun setting right over the Gulf of Mexico. Walking down the beach bare foot is like walking on white powder. I have never felt a softer sand in my life. If you have a nightlife, you should definitely check out the Siesta Key strip and the restaurants around the area.
I had the opportunity to visit there this past October and let me be the first to tell you, this place is one of a kind. The beaches our clean with white sand and crystal clear blue water. The town is small and offers a lot of gift shops, local music, great restaurants, and a great atmosphere!
