This annual list recognizes the top 25 beaches in the country and both Siesta Key and Lido Key made the cut! In fact, this is actually Siesta Key Beach’s second year in a row appearing on the list, coming in at Number 3.  And Lido Beach made its list debut at Number 22.

What’s more, Siesta Key Beach had the added honor of being the highest-ranking beach in Florida!sunbathing chair

These rankings really speaks volumes to what an amazing place the Sarasota area is to live and why people from all over the country relocate to our slice of paradise each year!

What Makes Siesta Key and Lido Such Incredible Beaches?

According to, travelers voted for their favorite beaches on the website, which features hotel reviews, travel advice and more.

Rankings were determined by the quality and quantity of traveler reviews as well as ratings over a year’s time.

So what exactly is it about these two beaches that make them such desirable destinations? Perhaps it’s the array of recreational amenities offered on these beaches or the pristine sand and dazzling blue waters.  Perhaps it’s the friendly locals or the strong sense of community that these beach communities have built.

Whatever it is, it sure is a popular place for people to not only visit but also to settle down in!
