This is the little sister to Siesta Key beach. Its not crowded but not as wide as Siesta either. Today is a good time to visit this spot if your in Florida if you havent been to Siesta Key beach before. Good times a little more laid back.

Our trip to Sarasota was in January. We had nearly perfect weather except for a bit of fog on the last day and a half. We stopped by Lido beach around 2 in the afternoon. There were a handful of people there, but not so many that it felt like an afternoon in the middle of the summer. While the water was a bit too cold for our taste, there were some kids who didn't seem to mind. There were families and couples, some with children and some without. Very happy we decided to stop by!

We went to the beach every day. Beautiful SOFT white sand. Water was beautiful and the shells were great. Rented an umbrella every day from the nice man on the beach.

I love going to Lido when I am over by St. Armands Cir. Very nice to go to beach and then walk around. White beach very nice and still too many people but again you get use to it. I would go again

A lovely beach, soft white sand, not too crowded, easy free parking, plenty of shells and a gentle lapping sea - heaven - and as an added bonus St Armands Circle is just a few moments away where you can wine & dine or simply do a bit of shopping. In many respects I prefer Lido beach to Siesta Key.
