Lido Key is a barrier island featuring three sandy beaches, world class shopping, a seasonal nightclub scene and woodland hiking/kayaking trails.

John Ringling had purchased these islands with plans for a major tourist attraction. Although the reality did not arrive in his lifetime, Lido and St. Armand Keys maintain world-class status featuring elegant shops, and award winning restaurants. The islands are linked with bridges to the mainland of Sarasota as well as Longboat Key.

An average year round 75-degree temperature is conducive for just about anything. Tennis and Golf enthusiasts will find first-class facilities near-by. Bikers and rollerbladers can travel the shoreline or wend their way through park-like settings and tropical side streets. Charter a Boat with or without a captain and explore the bays and backwaters, or take to the ocean for Deep Sea Fishing & diving. Another popular choice is a Sunset Cruise or Sailing/Sightseeing excursion.

About the Beaches

North Lido Beach is a pristine half-mile stretch of shoreline accented by towering Australian pines. This expansive location extends behind a residential community and is the least populated of the three beaches and perfect for shelling, walking and birding.

Perhaps the "beach scene" and making new friends is preferred. Mid-key, Lido’s public Beach supports a swimming pool, playground, concession stand and shops. Lifeguards are on duty all year-round.

At the southern end of the Key, you'll find 100 acres of Australian pines, picnic tables, grills, a volleyball court and playground. Nature lovers will enjoy the wooden walkways, trails and Kayaking opportunities at South Lido Park.

Evening entertainment is only a short stroll from your door to St Armands Key where sophisticated restaurants, nightclubs, shops and exotic boutiques rim a circular park dedicated to the memory of John Ringling.

Legendary fine dining can be found both on and off the Key. Whether your taste is for sushi, rack of lamb, stone crab or simply a down-home juicy burger, the range of award winning fare caters to every appetite whim.

Nearby Sarasota offers a vast array of arts and cultural attractions, as well as vibrant pockets of nightlife... downtown and beyond.

We thank you... for considering our little isle’s stunning beaches, recreational opportunities, superb shopping and award winning restaurants for your next vacation holiday.
