Lido Key is a local favorite with the most amazing sunsets and lies just west of St. Armands Circle. Lido Beach has a few changes in the near future as plans for a new restaurant and a few upgrades to communitiy amenties are slated for 2018. For those who want to be reminded of what Old Florida feels like, head to the southern point and you will find nestled among the Australian Pines a hidden gem known as South Lido Park where you can picnic, anchor a boat via Big Pass, and catch a city view of Sarasota. If traveling by boat, be sure to also visit Sand Dollar Island or drop a kayak and explore the exotic mangrove tunnels from South Lido Nature Park on Lido Key located at 100 Taft Drive (approximately 1/2 mile south of St. Armands).
The Gulf of Mexico is lined with condominiums while the intracoastal waters make way to the luxury single family homes.
