It’s official! “Dr. Beach” has confirmed what we’ve known all along: Siesta Beach was just named the #1 beach in the United States for 2011.
Dr. Stephen Leatherman ("Dr. Beach") is the director of the Laboratory for Coastal Research at Florida International University. He considers 50 different criteria including sand, water quality, facilities and crowds to rank the nation’s beaches in his annual survey. For the past two years, Siesta Key held the #2 ranking. Dr. Beach cited several factors that helped Siesta Key Beach win the top spot for 2011:
Siesta Key's sugar white quartz crystal sand is considered by many to be the finest and whitest sand in the world.
Siesta Key blue and turquoise water is clean and clear.
The waves are small and currents are gentle making it a very safe area for children.
Siesta Keys expansive sand is hundreds of yards wide with plenty of room for volleyball players, sunbathers and beachcombers.
Looking for something to do on the beach besides the usual? There are daily yoga classes, weekly beach runs, and of course the weekly staple drum circle. Residents and tourists alike gather at sunset on Sunday evenings to enjoy the rhythm of hand drums and the colorful antics they inspire.
