Lido Beach, Sarasota FL


Lido Beach is a pretty beach with white sand that becomes more brown and hard-packed by the shore. Little birds scurry along as the tiny waves chase them. The water is a pale turquoise and smells slightly of sulfur. This beach feels more cozy than Siesta Beach, but less happening. A walking path runs along the road that fronts the beach, though it has little shade. Lido Beach is walking distance from St Armands Circle, where you can shop or eat at a restaurant. Visit Mote Marine Lab Aquarium, a very short drive away, to see the cute animals like the manatee that kisses the glass in front of you.
