    Water is so clear you almost feel you are in the Bahamas! Stay in the Hemsley Sandcastle or Lido Beach Resort, right on the sand and not expensive, Tiki Bar on the sand with live music, fun!!!

    One of the best beaches. The sand is fine and frankly spectacular. There are designated lifeguard areas, a concession area with lavatories, and enough space for everyone to enjoy.

    At the lido beach park, you can rent beach chairs for the day for $7 as well as umbrellas for $12. Pay $4 (all day access) to use the adult pool and do laps.

    Excellent time. Sandbar is close to chill on. And oh, bring lots of sunscreen or a big umbrella. The sun is ruthless and you will get roasted.

    Interesting Fun Fact: With an average year-round temperature of 75°F, Sarasota’s 35 miles of beaches and six barrier islands are an ideal location to relax
