Unveiling Florida’s Best Gulf of Mexico Beaches
February 5, 2021
Florida’s Gulf Coast, spanning from Marco Island in southwest Florida to Pensacola Beach in the panhandle, boasts some of America’s most pristine and beloved beaches. There is a stretch of coastline that frequently appears on Dr. Beach’s Best-of-the-Best list, yet it still remains uncrowded—and it’s in our own backyard. Here’s an inside look at the Sarasota area’s amazing beach retreats nestled between Siesta Key and Anna Maria Island.
Siesta Key – Sunset Beach
On the north end of Siesta Key, just steps from the always-fun Ocean Boulevard, lies Sunset Beach. A local and tourist favorite, Sunset Beach is the perfect spot for those looking for a quieter public beach with breathtaking views. The soft white sand seems to extend forever as you look south, while you watch the sun set into the Gulf of Mexico. The best part is its close proximity to quaint bars and restaurants such as Blasé Café Martini Bar and Daiquiri Deck.
Lido Key – South Lido Key Beach Park
Another public beach just across the Big Sarasota Pass, South Lido Key Beach is an escape from the hustle and bustle of St. Armands Circle on Lido Key. A little more secluded, South Lido Key offers a more untamed beach feel, a little more “in the wild”, but still with plenty of close amenities, including South Lido Park. Once you feel relaxed and had time to unwind away from the world, St. Armand’s world-class shopping and dining is within easy reach if you want to make a day of it.
Longboat Key – Sage Longboat Key
