Get ready for unbeatable sunsets and turquoise waters at Lido Key Beach, a lovely seaside paradise. This family-friendly beach is known for its natural beauty and more relaxed vibe.
Rich in ecology, Lido Key is the place to go for deep sea fishing, dolphin watching, or sunset sailing. From May through October, the area is known for its significance as a sea turtle nesting site and a visit may even include a hatchling sighting!
To truly enjoy this area's boundless beauty, we recommend renting a paddle board or kayak and exploring the mangroves of Ted Perling Nature Park just two blocks off the beach on the Sarasota Bay side of South Lido Key beach. Or, try your chances to sight rare bird species at the North Lido Beach Park. For panoramic views of downtown Sarasota and the Gulf of Mexico, take a jog or enjoy a picnic at the South Lido Park.
After a day of nature, don't miss the shopping and dining at nearby St. Armands Circle.
