“Quiet and peaceful”
Review of South Lido Park

South Lido Park

South Lido Park is quiet and peaceful, a great place to get away from the more touristy stuff and enjoy a day of picnicking or kayaking. There's a place to launch your kayak that leads out to the mangrove tunnels and enjoy a day on the water.

A great view and nice park grounds. Lots of tables and grills but also lots of 'coons, that are hungry and persistent. The flying versions (blur herons) have also been known to steal fish off the grills. We find the cook needs a 'bouncer' to keep watch over the night's offering.

South Lido beach is my most favorite beach ever... I love being down at the actual tip away from most... It's like a peace of heaven!

Found this by accident really. Its a lovely, peacful place to sit and relax. You cant swim as there is a notice which says fishing only. This is due to currents I think. You can paddle though. No facilities or consessions but still nice for a couple of hours to read in peace with your toes in the sand.

Facilities available to have cookouts. You can pull your boat right up to the beach and hangout
