Siesta Key, Florida
Siesta Key Florida Vacation
Siesta Key is a beautiful island located just off the West Coast of Florida.
It has eight miles of pristine beaches just waiting for shell and beach glass hunters. *See note below.
Siesta Key beach is best known for its sugar white sand. Since the sand is 99% quartz it has a reflective quality that keeps it cool to the touch even on the hottest days. This becomes very important in the hot Florida sun.
Staying at one of the many Siesta Key Hotels with a private beach will give you the best chance for finding sea glass. It will cut out most of your hunting competition and give you a chance to start checking out the beach extra early.
