There are many Siesta Key Beachfront Condos for Sale on the beach at Siesta Key in Sarasota, Florida.  Now that Siesta Key beach has been named the number one beach in the United States by Dr. Beach this past month, we have been receiving many inquiries into what is available for Siesta Key Beachfront condos.  Siesta Key Beach has always been a very popular vacation location but now with this new designation as #1 it has gained us much national attention. The Beach at Siesta Key is made of sand that is 99% pure quartz which gives it a very unusual and extremely white look and a sugary soft feel.  The Beach doesn't get hot on your feet even on the warmest of the Florida summer beach days and the look is so different than anything that you have ever experienced it is hard to explain.    P...
