Lido Key Hotels, Resturants
and Things to Do

Lido Key is boasts three wonderful beaches each with its own personality. To the north and famous for its seclusion, North Lido Beach is a great place for a quiet walk on the beach or the perfect place to work on your tan while enjoying that best seller book you have been meaning to read.

Lido Beach is a favorite among locals and visitors.  Served by lifeguards, Lido Beach is popular with beach goers who enjoy the sugar white sand, plenty of free parking, restrooms, picnic tables and more.

South Lido Beach is the third of Lido Key’s beaches and is a great place to get back to nature.  South Lido Park and Nature Center offers visitors’ nature trails to explore, picnic areas, kayaking and canoeing.  South Lido Beach is a popular family picnic area with its shade trees, grills, restrooms and more.

Lido Key is accessible from Sarasota to the east by using John Ringling Boulevard and from the north by traveling south from Longboat Key.  Just to the east of Lido Key is world famous St. Armand’s Circle and its upscale shops and restaurants.
