Aerial view of Siesta Beach, Siesta Key, Florida

Siesta Beach is a beach located on Siesta Key in the U.S. state of Florida. Unlike beaches elsewhere that are made up mostly of pulverized coral, Siesta Beach's sand is 99% quartz, most of which comes from the Appalachian Mountains.


Fiesta at Siesta


Here we are in mid-March already, the time of year when college-age revelers invade the world's beaches, like this one on Florida's Siesta Key. Located in Sarasota County off the state's western shore, the island beach is a fixture on lists of America's top beaches, a standout even in a state where soft, welcoming sands compose over half the 1,200-mile coastline.

Using the onset of spring as an excuse to cut loose is nothing new, going back at least to the ancient Greeks and Romans. But spring break as we know it originated in the 1930s, when Fort Lauderdale began welcoming college swim teams for training. In March 1961, over 50,000 young people vacationed in the city. By the '70s, rising prices and increasing consternation of locals began driving the party from Fort Lauderdale to other Florida beaches, and eventually everywhere else. Tourist-vs.-townie tensions still rage in spring break hotspots, but the party rages on.
