Sarasota, famous for its award-winning white sand beaches is located on the gulf coast of Florida. Sarasota not only offers visitors an extensive coastline to explore but also charming shopping districts, art galleries, museums, and attractions.

Believe it or not that there is a myth that says the white quartz sand of Siesta Key holds magical healing powers and that Native Americans who settled here blessed the area to keep it safe from the elements.
