Lido is the closest beach to downtown Sarasota.

I go to Lido Key Beach often for a quick walk on the beach or a sunset cocktail at the Ritz Tiki Bar at the Ritz beach club I can be there in 5 minutes !

The American Shore and Beach Preservation Association just announced Lido as one of the country’s best-restored beaches.

Lido just went through a two-month beach renourishment project that added 600,000 tons of sand and added 200 yards in width to the beach.

It is most impressive.. For those of you who haven’t been to Lido Key beach in a while you won’t believe the difference.
