Discover St. Armands and Lido Key


St. Armands Key offers a unique combination of walkability, exclusivity, luxury and beach.  Lido Key  consists of luxury condos and waterfront homes that are bay front and  beach front.

Located just off the mainland past Bird Key, Lido Key, Florida is a European style island connected by bridge to the Sarasota lido st. armandsmainland – St. Armands Key. Here you’ll find the renowned Lido Key Public Beach which features that sparkling blue water our area is famous for. Circus magnate John Ringling acquired St Armands Key in 1917. At the time, there was no bridge connecting St Armands Key to the mainland. Ringling’s crews developed the streets, sidewalks, canals and seawalls. In 1925, work began on a causeway to connect St Armands Key with downtown Sarasota.  Although primarily known for trendy boutiques, dining, and art galleries, the area surrounding the “Circle” is also home to a wonderful selection of homes and condos.

Nature lovers will appreciate the secluded trails offering glimpses of spoonbills, osprey stilts and more on Lido Key. Those with kayaks and canoes will have the ability to travel the waterways through forests of mangroves where shore birds raise their young. With an average year round 75-degree temperature, this island paradise is very conducive for just about any lifestyle. Tennis and Golf enthusiasts will find first-class facilities near-by. Bikers and rollerbladers can travel along the shoreline or wend their way through park-like settings and tropical side streets.  Evening entertainment is only a short stroll away at St. Armand’s Circle. A circular park dedicated to the memory of John Ringling, is flanked by sophisticated restaurants, nightclubs, exclusive shops and exotic boutiques.
