Nation’s #1 Beach Only US Beach on International List
Clean, fine, white sand. Miles and miles of it.
Siesta Key Beach’s trademark has again landed a spot on a best beaches list, this time as #5 on TripAdvisor’s Top 25 Beaches in the World.
Sarasota’s most popular beach has previously been named number one in the US by Dr. Beach and TripAdvisor, and it’s a point of pride for year-round residents, as well as a major draw for tourists.
Besides the soft, powdery sand, other noteworthy qualities are the beach’s proximity to restaurants, shopping, and lodging, as well as its warm, clear waters and the newly-completed $21M improvement project, which has been drawing in locals and tourists alike since last year.
Each evening, crowds flock to the beach to catch the sunset – which is always breathtaking.
For us locals, it’s a year-round delight; for tourists, it’s a darn good reason to vacation in Sarasota!
