Siesta beach offers a piece of heaven with its flawlessly white sand beach, which at present holds the label as the best beach in America. The sand of Siesta Beach is made up of 99% quartz; the extraordinary sand of Siesta Beach is powdery fine and remains astonishingly cool to the touch even in the hottest weather conditions. In addition, the broad beach has outstanding park-like facilities that consist of a big parking lot, tennis courts, volleyball courts, lifeguard on duty, a picnic spot with barbecue grills, a porch with seating, a recreational area dedicated only for children, and lavatory facilities. For tourist accommodation there are several beach vacation rentals, fully equipped with all modern amenities. Sunset at Siesta beach is a sight to watch and that is why each Sunday, an hour before sunset; the crowd gets together at the beach to gaze at the wonderful sunset. Man, woman, and children can all join, boogie to the music or simply look at the amusement led by the Siesta Key Drum Circle. This beach-wide event continues well into the night time, when a few head to Siesta Village for added entertainment. At the village, guests can select from the chains of bars and restaurants on Ocean Boulevard or the close by cross streets. Take your pick from neighborhood seaside delicacies or intercontinental cuisine, and possibly some live song on the side. The best way for visitors to enjoy the night life at Siesta Bay is to rent vacation home rentals close to the beach so that they are never far from the enjoyment. The Siesta Key Farmers Market as well happens to take place at the village each Sunday starting in morning and continuing until midday. Shoppers can choose from the wide variety of selection of local produce, fresh seafood, gourmet meats and cheese, cut flowers and tropical vegetable varieties, and loads of others fresh things. If you take a walk around the plaza everywhere you will see fresh reds, greens, and yellows welcoming you and tempting you to try out your culinary skills. If you are staying in any beach vacation rentals then you can try out your culinary skills and prepare your own special dishes with the fresh local produce. Despite the fact that there are several vacation home rentals available on the isle, not anything stands out more than those with such a great location equally close to the beach and the village. Siesta Shores on Beach Road is a commune of residences diagonal to the street from Siesta Beach and about a five-minute hike from the village. The compound is a small neighborhood of beach cottages in extremely “old Florida” fashion. Every one of the structures is either duplex or single unit that is intended to look like a beach cottage with a small fenced-in garden and a courtyard with picturesque railing. No dwelling on the island gets further tropical than this. If you are lucky enough you can rent beach vacation rentals here become part of this picturesque setting.
