Pick any spot on Lido Key and you can watch the sand pipers and terns play on the gulf’s edge, play volleyball on the soft sand, walk the nature trails, sit on the beach to sunbath, or catch a breathtaking sunset. Stick around long enough and you may see a few dolphins swim by or catch a manatee come up for a breath of air.
There are three main areas of Lido Key to enjoy: North Lido, Main Beach Stretch and Park as well as the hidden South Lido Beach.
The North Beach area is a quiet place to enjoy the spacious beach area. It’s never crowded at North Lido, but parking may be limited. Come early morning and you will find plenty of sand dollars buried under the sand.
The Main Lido Beach stretches along Ben Franklin Drive. It has beautiful dunes and fine white sands. Also included in this stretch is Lido Beach Park. It has a pavilion, restaurant and concessions, restrooms, a playground, and plenty of parking. It also offers a public swimming pool in case visitors are interested in fresh water swim- a refreshing break from the salt water.
Drive a little bit farther south and you will find South Lido Beach Park. This area has shaded picnic tables, grills and nature trails. It sports kayak and canoe launch areas and self-guided water trails are available. Another volleyball court, more play equipment and nature trails make it a perfect area to relax or enjoy a more active beach day.
The famous St. Armand’s Circle is one of the main attractions on Lido Key which hosts many activities such as car shows, arts and craft shows and much more. It also has more than 130 shops, boutiques, salons and restaurants. Mote Marine Laboratory Aquarium is also right around the corner as is the Ski-a-Rees…a local water ski team that puts on free shows every Sunday during the season.
