Lido Key is one of Sarasota's larger barrier islands where you'll find elegant homes and luxurious condos separated from the Sarasota mainland by St. Armands Circle and the Ringling Causeway and from Longboat Key by a short bridge. All of the homes and condos on Lido Key are either on or just a short walk from the white sands and warm waters of its Gulf of Mexico beaches.
