“Momma, when I grow up, I wanna puff out my chest and pose like a lifeguard in Florida…” Came to Siesta Key beach the other day and voila! Lifelong ambition accomplished😊😆 Siesta Key beach in Sarasota is famous for being rated as the number 1 beach in the entire US. Living in Cyprus we are spoilt rotten with gorgeous beaches. But even for us we’ve never seen such an incredible and unique beach before: the sand is soft, white powdery, like icing sugar. The reason is because it is 99% pure Quartz, which means that it is always silky in texture and cool to the touch, even during the hottest summer days. Also, being west facing, the sunsets here are stunning! The lifeguards don’t disappoint either😊 #mysarasota #lovesarasota #loveflorida #lovefl #ad @visitflorida @visitsarasotacounty
