Very calm beach not a lot of people when i went sooo it was even more relaxing. Gorgeous sunset. Nice walkways to get to beach. Cool white sand. Thankfully I didn't see much litter which made me so happy. Enjoy the fresh air.

It's a great beach, white sand, sea is warm. We easily found parking just a couple of hundred yards away. Will certainly be visiting again on our stay in Florida.

Lido beach is beautiful- on the shore of the Gulf of Mexico - beautiful turquoise water. Sand is soft, but very shell filled by the waters edge - be careful walking. The city does an excellent job of keeping this beach clean!
