Siesta Beach

      Siesta Beach can be found on the small island Siesta Key, off the coast of Sarasota, Florida in the USA. The island can be accessed by a bridge. Unlike other sandy beaches in the world, Siesta beach is interesting for its sand, being 99% quartz. Reportedly, this sand is millions of years old. It came from the Appalachian mountains and went down with the rivers. For this reason, the sand is so reflective that it makes it feel cool under your feet even in the summer.
