SARASOTA, Fla. - The beautiful beaches on Siesta Key are no secret to American travelers.  But now a national website ranks it among the best in the world.

Yahoo Travel has published their list of "10 beaches that should be on your bucket list."  Among their 10 selections, only two are in the United States (Siesta and Hawaii's Punalu'u Black Sand Beach), with a third in the U.S. Virgin Islands (Trunk Bay).

The feature mentions the snow-white sand that "feels like satiny baby powder or powdered sugar", and cites the Dr. Beach designation as the #1 beach in America on his 2011 list.
