From the moment you slip off your sandals and sink your tootsies into the warm, white sand, Siesta is sublime. You can almost feel the emotional imprint of the millions of people who’ve come to the beach for fun, sun, romance, solitude, weddings, break-ups and make-ups, remembering, forgetting, praying, and celebrating.

Yes, Siesta’s seen it all … and soothed it all. Somewhere between the sand and the saltwater and the sun — a magic works itself on nearly every individual who sets foot on the beach — and later, when they leave, as they gather up their picnic baskets and shake the sand from their towels, they may not even realize it, but they feel somehow “better.” Lighter. Less worried, more calm. Feeling almost imperceptibly more connected to the world.

If you live here year-round, it’s easy to forget just how soothing Siesta can be. For natives, “season” can be a time to stay away from the beach — who wants to fight the crowds and circle like vultures for a parking spot?  But summer’s different — you can park and relax and enjoy … a lot.
