Find a beachview rental in Lido Key

Lido Key is a barrier island with opportunities to go snorkeling and scuba diving and to relax on long stretches of beach with dining areas, beach sports, surf, sun, and sand. You can visit the Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium or the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens. Witness the works at the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art or see classical and rare operas in the renovated historic Sarasota Opera House. You'll find all sorts of exciting and unique attractions just a few minutes from your Siesta Key beachfront rentals in Lido Key. Whether you're a couple on holiday or on an annual family vacation, it's all waiting here.

Things to do

Wander a research aquarium hand-in-fin with local animals

When you're tuckered out from the sun and sand, head to the Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium, a research facility that studies sharks and allows visitors a glimpse of the action in its labs. The kids will be thrilled by the opportunity to get up close and personal with sea turtles, manatees, and sea otters. Next door to Motes is the Save Our Seabirds Wild Bird Learning Center, which houses over 120 birds in outdoor habitats. Your Lido Key vacation rental will likely be in walking distance of St. Armand's Circle, featuring the picturesque Harding Circle Historic District.

Activities

Let's peruse your options: beach, beach, or beach

As you yawn, stretch, and greet the day from a window of your Lido Beach vacation rental, you'll likely be considering which stretch of sand deserves your company this morning. North Lido Beach is a little quieter than the rest, with its sparkling sand dunes and nearby nature trails. Lido Beach has free parking and a pavilion with snacks and restrooms, and South Lido Beach offers comfortable grassy lawns and barbecues. The strong current at South Lido makes swimming a no-no, but it's a popular picnic spot for families.

Weather

Spring down to the beach or fall into balmy autumn weather

Lido Key's weather is at its loveliest from March to May and from October to late November. Average temps are in the 70s, and rain is rare. Of course, you won't be the only one enjoying the beautiful sunshine and miles of white sand, so if you'd like to avoid the crowds and don't mind the heat, travel in summer, when afternoons are sweltering and thunderstorms provide rainy relief. Floridians are hurricane experts (the hurricane season lasts from June to November), so listen for official warnings and advice if the forecast gets stormy.

Natural features

Commune with nature under a mangrove archway

Set between Sarasota Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, this tiny barrier island is a haven for marine animals. Take a stroll on the sand during the early-morning hours to spot shorebirds congregating around tidal pools and sand spits. At the southern tip of the island, South Lido County Park offers beaches full of sand dollars and plenty of places to fish. On its border is Ted Sperling Nature Park, where visitors can paddle their kayaks through tunnels formed by the arching branches of red mangrove trees and look for West Indian manatees and black-winged cormorants.
