Among Sarasota’s holistic community, Siesta Beach has an impressive reputation: It’s known as a place where a concentration of energy maximizes the ability to heal physically and emotionally. The credit goes to the qualities of the beach’s sand. The legend is that the presence offshore of quartz crystals may be derived from the ancient mythical city of Atlantis. Some healers point to a decades-old, well-canopied tree, surrounded by heavy grass growth and growing about 60 feet from the coast, as an indication of the beach’s metaphysical vitality. Others talk of a mysterious protection from hurricanes that they credit to either Indian blessings or a vortex of energy they say exists near the rumored Atlantis crystal location.
Whatever the reasons, Siesta Beach is growing in the reverence it receives among people who consider themselves “energy healers” or shamans, and its reputation for healing power stretches even to Peru.
The belief in Siesta Beach’s concentration of energy has at least some scientific roots that can be documented, and it has to do with Siesta’s sand. Whiter than the sand at any other beach in the area, Siesta’s sand is also known for its relative coolness even on the hottest of days. Those qualities are derived from the content of sand, which is indeed unique from any other beach in the world Siesta sand is 99.9 percent quartz. This makes the sand appear very white. And because of the way the crystals have been worn down, the sand is exceptionally soft. You also won’t find much particulate shell matter.
Siesta’s sand originated thousands of years ago from the Appalachian area. That fact is significant to energy healers because of their deep belief that quartz is itself a healing material, especially quartz derived from the area near Hot Springs, Ark. Quartz crystal is a natural conductor of energy, Many healers frequently choose Siesta Beach as the site for meditation events because of the energy they feel is concentrated there. Quartz is one of the highest vibratory minerals of the earth. And we are mineral-based; we’re made up of the same elements the earth is made of, so you could take somebody who knows nothing about quartz or crystals or elements, have them lie down on the quartz crystal sand of Siesta Beach on a beautiful day and the elements in their body the molecular structure in their body will resonate with the quartz in that sand. As for the Siesta Key yoga classes, which are held directly on the sand, it can be absolutely transformational. I believe the legends may have real validity because I have not found a beach that inspires so much healing, love and inner peace as I found here on Siesta Key beach.

"Kathy was awesome as our realtor. I have dealt with many realtors, but none as advanced and hands on with the showings. During the showings she had pointed out the flaws with the homes for us to make an educated decision. She had guided us on the different areas that would best fit our needs. Most realtors are all about the sale, but my experience with her was the exception. She went the extra mile to make sure the home you were looking for met your needs and did not push you into a home that might not be right for you.The response time was incredible, she guaranteed a phone call or answer to any question same day. Her customer service was incredible and would recommend to all of our friends and family. I have dealt with many realtors in my profession but none as as caring, knowledgeable, or efficient as her. Kathy's referrals for the inspector and mortgage process was outstanding. I would not hesitate to look forward to anyone else going forward. Best Regards, Jim Glowniak "
