  • The sand is clean and white, shells littered the beach area. The water is warm, crystal clear and so clean.

  • Beautiful beach, especially for sunsets, but a little crowded. Great for swimming. Hard to find public parking.

  • Visited November of 2021. Was traveling thru Sarasota en-route to Ana Maria Island and decided to take a quick detour to South Lido beach. Overall quiet, laid back environment with great views of a straightway ocean passage of the Gulf of Mexico. The restrooms were fairly quick to find and to my surprise, super clean. Highly recommend to visit park. Just make sure to bring yourself and an empty drive to take plenty of photos : )
  • Free parking and a good bit of it a decent playground. They have one outdoor shower and public restrooms. The beach was very open and nice. The water was clean and beautiful.only down side to this beach is the amount of shells. There is shells everywhere but there's like piles on piles of shells by the water that you have to walk through to get to the water and there was a good size bank of shells a cpl feet on the water once you get past the bank of shells there really isn't much. I would recommend wearing nice water shoes so the shells don't hurt your feet.
