A block from St Armands circle, almost a hidden gem, free parking, great place for the kids, relaxing quiet atmosphere, great for strolling and looking for the perfect shell, waves were fairly gentle which was good for the chidren, made some great sand castles

Water is the best I I've seeing in the USA. A lot of algae, very crowded, but I spent most of the time snorkeling and looking at the little fishes near the shore.

Stayed at Lido Beach Resort. Lots of fun with the family. A late night stroll on the beach brought us to a surprise face to face encounter with a sea turtle laying her eggs. A great stay.

Just returned from Lido and we are already ready to go back! We absolutely loved the beach! It was not crowded, it is very clean, the sand is soft and beautiful. It is very close to St. Armand's Circle, which is very convenient. The view is breathtaking, both morning and evening. Loved every minute!!

White sand, beautiful sun, pleasant people. Our daughter quite enjoyed the nesting birds and watched them feed the young until the sun set. We hit the beach twice just to capture the setting sun and it just made for the end of a perfect day!

The sand is perfect. Beautiful scenery. Lots of room on beach. The biggest negative is the parking. If u dint get there early don't bother to come.
