Best beach in Florida

I have visited a lot of beaches around Florida. Siesta beach is the best beach. The sand is very nice, water is clean, people are friendly. Lots to do around.

Our weather was on and off but we got out to the beach a couple of times, love this beach..only issue is parking. I heard people saying they got there at 11 and there were no parking places left. Day we went weather wasn't the best so plenty of parking. Always beautiful

This has always been a great walking beach with firm sand along the waterside and silky, sugary sand on a wide beach. Add the additional parking, food service, picnic areas, shade respites and the promenade and you have a truly first class beach

I could never find a parking place. I could not go on the beach. Crazy!! Had to drop off my son and girlfriend just so they could get a picture. Drove around for one-hour!

This is a huge beach a short walk from the main road through Siesta Key. It's a very popular beach, but there's so much room, this doesn't matter.

This beach was absolutely gorgeous. Powdery white sand for miles. Very crowded though, so expect that your spot on the sand will be next to plenty of other people.
