Siesta Beach the best beach in the United States

Siesta Beach in Sarasota, Fla., has been ranked the best beach in the United States by coastal expert Stephen P. Leatherman. At the Great International White Sand Beach Challenge, the beach having whitest and finest sand in the world is Siesta Beach.

Every year Leatherman ranks the Top 10 beaches in America judging by 50 criteria such as how wide the beach is at low tide, whether it is made of cobbles or powdery coral, how soft the sand is, the number of sunny days, air and water temperature, water color, waves, currents and other factors.

Siesta Beach came out on top for 2011 leading the way in all of Dr. Beach's criteria.
"It has the finest and whitest sand in the world, and I cannot argue with this claim; the powdery sand is nearly pure quartz crystal. The beautiful blue-colored water is clean and clear, making it so inviting to bathers and swimmers. This beach park is complete with showers and bathrooms, snack bars, grills, picnic tables, shade trees, and a large parking area, which does fill up on summer weekends," Leatherman said.
