Lido beach is a great place to rest and relax. Good facilities, can get a bit crowded.

Beautiful white sands. Smaller and usually not as crowed as Siesta Key. Easy Parking.

This is my favorite beach I've ever been to. The white sand and beautiful blue green water is amazing. It is very well maintained and better than the private beaches in the area for that reason. With St. Armand's Circle just a short walk away where you can get a slice of pizza or some ice cream, as well as many shops and restaurants, it is the ideal location in my opinion. A must! But I recommend getting there early for a close parking spot.

Closest beach to condo at Willow Green at the Meadows. Maybe 20 minutes. Stop to shop on way at St. Armonds Circle. Also can head out to Longboat Key for dining or golfing.

A little obsessed with this beach. The sand is never too hot that you can't walk on it; and even when there are a lot of people, there is still a lot of room for you to spread out and set up camp. Nice and quiet as well.

Beautiful white sandy beach, lushly landscaped surroundings, a wonderful junior Olympic pool and the concession has the best lobster rolls in town! (Only on Sundays though) Lots of events in the summer for your enjoyment.

Lido Beach gives you that secluded beach area that you can relax and take in the beautiful waters and enjoy watching the sunset in the evenings.

You can walk here from the circle. It is a great beach for a walk which we do every morning after getting a coffee at Starbucks. There is a small beach bar about a mile to the south that I cannot remember the name of but it is not obvious. This would be a good place to watch the sunset.

Lido beach is what's it's all about. From the parks on the north and south ends of the island there's plenty to do if you like to have a relaxing day at the beach. Check out the public beach pavilion on Sunday afternoons for live music and meet some of the locals.

My personal favorite beach in Sarasota. All the beauty of Siesta Key without the crowd, and St. Armand's Circle is only steps away.

Closer than Siesta Key and less crowded, Lido Beach has the same sugar sand beaches and closer parking. South Lido offers an area to drop anchor and picnic all with public restrooms and even an occasional raccoon visitor. Try the kayak guided tours and see the inter-coastal areas up close and personal.

A beautiful whits sandy beach just off St. Armand's Circle. A great place for families to go to the beach, breathtaking sunsets, and a great place to walk and watch the sunsets.
