The Beach

Lido Beach

I'm a California girl who loves the beach! Florida has great ones. Lido beach is wonderful, lots of lively action. I learned that "Lido" is the name of the beach in Venice, Italy.
Siesta Beach

 Designated on May 28, 2011 by "Dr. Beach" as the No. 1 Beach in America, Siesta Beach also has earned a reputation as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

Siesta's fine white sands, unlike any other beach sands, are composed of 99% pure quartz, causing them to stay cool even on a hot sunny day.

But I think my favorite was Caladesi Island. As one of the few completely natural islands along Florida´s Gulf Coast, Caladesi´s white sand beaches were rated America's Best Beach in 2008. Maybe it was the added mystery of the access.  The park is accessible only by boat or ferry.
