Lido Beach, Sarasota
- Soak up the natural beauty and charm of the peaceful Lido Beach
- Hop on a dolphin spotting tour or a sunset cruise
- Visit the chic boutiques and fine dining restaurants of St. Armands Circle
Escape to the sugary white sands and spectacular blue waters of Lido Beach; a great beach destination for all the family. Whether you’re looking for a day of relaxation in a tropical paradise or a water sports adventure, Lido Beach is the perfect place to do it all. There’s even a public swimming pool, shaded picnic area, and a playground just for kids at Lido Key Public Beach, making it suitable for an all-day adventure.
The beach is made up of three popular beaches – all of which are less crowded than the nearby Siesta Key Beach, but just as beautiful. What’s more, you’ll find yourself less than half a mile away from the region’s hottest shopping spot – St. Armands Circle. Grab a delicious treat at Ben & Jerry’s ice cream parlour. Pick up a souvenir or two at the eclectic variety of stores. Or simply enjoy a cocktail and fresh, local cuisine at one of the many eateries.
Lido Beach is located just west of Sarasota on Florida’s Gulf coast. Parking here is plentiful – in fact, there’s space for 400 vehicles at the beach.
