We loved this beach! Beautiful, cool white sand, lots of room for frisbee toss, and beautiful calm waters. There is a sand bar you can swim to and this beach was not as crowded as siesta key. Free parking too!

Lido beach has lovely views! The sand is white, the water is blue, and there are a lot of places within walking distance to eat and shop.

Beautiful beach, less crowded than Siesta Key, and we didn't have to pay to park. While we were there, some workers from Mote Marine Laboratory released a large loggerhead turtle they had been rehabilitating. So cool!
