North Lido Beach Photo Gallery

Beyond the lifeguard stands at Lido Beach, North Lido extends probably another two miles. Its untouched seclusion once made for a popular “topless” destination. NOT TODAY! This crowd-less beach is ideal for strolling, birding and quiet solitude. There are no facilities other than a lot for parking and sprayers to rinse off sandy feet.

Park Free and Walk to the Northern Tip of the Island.

Island rentals abound from luxury resort hotels and rental condominiums to apartment efficiencies and motel rooms. Most have views of the Gulf of Mexico featuring private beaches or beach access. The allure of Lido is not just the pristine beaches but, world-class shopping, Zagat rated dining and Sarasota’s culture and nightlife. BOOK NOW… as this all inclusive heavenly haven is extremely desirable! RECOMMENDED ACCOMMODATIONS
