“Great sunsets”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2012

Right down the key from St. Armends circle. Take a short drive after shopping on the circle. Most don't get this far.

“Lido Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2012

The beach is gorgeous, clean and very well groomed. Too cold to go in the water ( we choose the chilly weekend to visit).

The proximity of this beach to town makes it very nice for travelers with limited time.

“Very nice beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2012

Not quite as great as Siesta, but if you are in downtown Sarasota, it's the closest beach and is pretty nice.

“A slice of heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2012

I loved the fact that I was able to find 2 sand dollars here. Am so happy shelling here. It's quiet and not so crowded.In case you are wondering the sand is not as fine the one in crescent beach.
