Siesta Beach is known as one of the most beautiful beaches anywhere in the world. Unlike beaches elsewhere that are made up mostly of pulverized coral, Siesta Beach's sand is 99% quartz. Even on the hottest days, the sand is so reflective that it feels cool underfoot. It's estimated that the sand on Siesta Beach is millions of years old, having its origin in the Appalachians and flowing down the rivers from the mountains until it eventually was deposited on the shores of Siesta Key. Siesta Key Beach has many awards it has earned, which include:
* “The whitest and finest sand in the world” (The Great International Beach Challenge, 1987),
* “The Best Sand Beach in America” (The Travel Channel, 2004),
* “The Best Beach in America” (Dr. Beach, 2011, 2017).

SKOB continues to raise and donate money to charities for over the last 11 years. We have had "Beer Garden's" during Siesta Fiesta's Closed Street Event. We take the best of an event that shuts us off from the world and invite others to experience more of SKOB as we move the tables outside, and have an activity to support a heartwarming cause.
We have to keep SKOB clean, so the dollars that were stapled on the walls and ceiling were taken down and donated to several local charities.
We are also proud to support, during the month of October, which is Breast Awareness Month, Striking For Breast Cancer. SKOB donated half of the sales of a special desert made especially for October.
Past charities we have donated to: Venice High School Football, Easter Seals, A liver transplant victim, East Bay Little League, A 6 month old baby girl who needed a heart value operation, and a Cancer event for David Rizzo. We take philanthropy very passionately and are honored to help our friends.
