You’ve found your beloved partner and you’re engaged to be married. Congratulations! You both also want to get married at a destination wedding ceremony, but not with a big crowd or a lot of fuss. There are a number of beaches to choose from but one stands out for beauty and tranquility: Lido Beach near Sarasota, Florida. This beach offers warm Gulf breezes and year-round sunshine with lots of nature to enjoy. Shells, seabirds, snorkeling, dolphins, and fishing are a few things that make this location perfect for a beach wedding and a honeymoon.

Lido Beach Activities

Lido Key Beach is located near Siesta Key, with a calm, relaxing beachfront known as the “Emerald Coast”. Lido Beach sand is a little harder than Siesta Key which makes it much easier for walking…so take a romantic stroll. The beach is also not as crowded or wide as Siesta Key which makes it easier for wedding guests to find your ceremony location. The seclusion of this Gulf beach is what makes it one of the best places for a beach wedding or to elope in Florida.
