Beautiful sunset and a great Place for shelling. It wasn't that busy at all and the showers at the end were nice for washing the sand away. It was tight on parking though, you'd have to walk a good way to get to the beach.

Compared to the more popular Siesta Key, this place has more trees for shade and less people, you might even find a parking spot! There are rest room facilities, picnic areas and places to fish or kayak.

Careful the current can be strong, keep an eye on the kids. Lesser crowds make that easy.... clear beautiful water and the nearby showers make this spot one our favorites... lots of starfish if you look!

At the furthermost tip of Lido Key one will find South Lido park. Easily accessible via bicycle, auto or bus. Seldom crowded. Quiet, peaceful. A beautiful place to view the Sarasota sunsets!

The beach was nice - relatively uncrowded, a bit of seaweed in the water but not bad. We had a nice time relaxing and swimming here.

Leider kein Kayaking, no kayaking. Die Strömungen in die Bucht hinein können gefährlich sein. Schwimmen hier ist untersagt.
