Siesta Beach, Florida

On a recent trip to Longboat Key, Florida I just had to get over to Siesta Beach in Sarasota and see what Dr. Beach ranked the #2 in the USA.  (Back in 2011 it was ranked the #1 Beach in the USA) .

The beach is complete with volleyball nets, a snack bar, grills, tables, beach rental services, bathrooms, and lifeguards.  I can see the draw as it does have calm clear water and nice white sand.  The stretch of sand from the parking lot to the beach is wide and hard packed and once you’re at the shoreline you see a line of umbrellas and chairs stretching each direction.  The Gulf of Mexico’s warm, calm water makes it the perfect place for small children.

Hanauma Bay

 

I have to agree with Dr. Beach on this one.  It’s one of the most beautiful beaches we’ve been to and, like so many beaches in Hawaii, holds a very special place in our hearts.

Hanauma Bay allows you to get up close and personal with the amazing sea creatures of Hawaii and the view from the beach to die for!  There is something very special about being on the crescent-shaped coral sand beach!!

 

I love seeing The Dr. Beach Best Beach List come out every year and get excited seeing some of our favorites on it!  Have you been to any on the list?   What’s your favorite beach?  Feel free to share it in the comments, I’d love to hear from you!!!
