Siesta Key: Top Beach in America (Again!)

Siesta Beach has been named #1 in the U.S. and #11 in the world by the 2020 TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice™ awards. Here's a few reasons why this island oasis has earned the top ranking for the third time since 2015.

Siesta Beach in Sarasota, Florida continues to rank highly on the “Top Beach” lists curated by worldwide travelers and renowned coastal experts. Its nearly 100% quartz-crystal sand is like walking on a cloud that never gets hot under the Gulf Coast sun and tropical weather. The recent addition of new playgrounds for kids, a renovated Sarasota School of Architecture pavilion and 150 additional free parking spaces has helped Siesta continue to delight beachgoers year after year.
