Sarasota Power Boat Grand Prix

Beach Activities

 

The white beaches are one of the most famous, recognisable and popular features of the Sarasota area. They welcome even the most reticent shade seekers and transform them into fully-fledged beach bums. One of the pleasures that comes with sunning on the beaches of Sarasota are the opportunities to recline on a beach lounger, sip a piña colada and take in the stunning views of the stretches of turquoise sea.

 

However, if you prefer to get up and go, Lido Key, 300 feet of the resort’s private beachfront, offers ample opportunities for more active aquatic adventures. Guests can sail, scuba dive or even fish to their heart’s content on the tranquil waves of Florida’s Gulf Coast.
