It lies in the middle of the row of barrier islands across the IntraCoastal Waterway (Sarasota Bay) from downtown Sarasota. Lido Key is separated from the Sarasota mainland by the John Ringling Causeway and bridge and St. Armands Key with its world-famous St. Armands Circle shopping and dining mecca and from Longboat Key to its north by a short bridge across New Pass.

  Andree Huffine, a respected Sarasota luxury homes Realtor helping people purchase Sarasota luxury condos says, "Lido Key is a quiet respite for beach lovers. There are three different types of homes on this attractive barrier island; single-family waterfront homes, single-family homes not directly on the water and condominiums. Architectural styles range from contemporary and Mediterranean to a few remaining, older Sarasota School of Architecture homes. Most of the homes on Lido Key range from the $500,000's to over $8,000,000. Condos are available from the high $200¬ís up. All the homes and condos on Lido Key are just a short walk from one of Lido's three pristine beaches.

  North Lido Beach is a pristine half-mile long beach perfect for beach-walking. The beach includes dunes covered with sea oats providing cover for those wishing to be tan more discreetly. The 22-acre North Lido Beach Park feels like a forest overlooking the beach and its dunes, and includes a hiking trail to the northernmost parts of the beach.

  Mid-island is the Lido Key public beach, the most popular Lido Key beach, offering cabana beach rentals, a snack and gift shop, rest rooms, a playground, a handicapped-accessible lookout deck, and more than ample parking.

  South Lido Beach and park, at the southern tip of Lido Key, sits on 100 acres of shady Australian pines. A perfect spot for a leisurely stroll on its woodland trail or a family picnic on the public barbecue grills.

  "If sun drenched white sand beaches, crystal blue warm waters, and tropical breezes are your cup of tea, Lido Key should certainly be on your list of 'must sees' before you make a decision.
