Well kept beach. Looks just like the pictures. Parking was a bit of a challege, but we'll worth the drive.

Great sunset or quiet reading spot during the week, a little loud (and fun) on the weekends. The South side of the beach is NOT for swimming as it is a water way with a swift current. It is perfectly safe for a shoreline dip but stick close to the shore. The west side swimming is just fine so park and head in the direction that suits your game plan for a swim. Plenty of grills and picnic areas with lots of shade and brand new facilities. There is a playground and a volley ball area both well kept. You cant beat this spot for a great view of both bay and ocean. Watching the water, boats and beautiful water is a real treat.

Located at the far south end of Lido Key is a small park with pine trees, picnic tables, the bay on one side and the gulf on the other. We love taking a picnic, grilling some brats, and enjoying the sunsets. Our guests love it there!

Great Florida park, wonderful city and gulf views, walking trails, beach. But not good for swimming due to strong currents. Be careful of aggressive racoons who have become used to tourists feeding them. They will be coming close to you looking for food, so despite picnic tables it is not a good place for lunch. Tourists, please brush up on your reading skills. Signs do say that it is against the law to feed wildlife.

A welcome break from the beach, parking is free and right next to where you want to be.....benches and tables next to the Bar B Q's, beware of swimming as some areas are used by boaters, just keep an eye open.do not swim at the point as currents are very strong here....facilities have been updated since my last visit, new toilet and shower blocks, racoons still live here so watch your food ....
