Live on the Gulf of Mexico for Picturesque Sunsets and a Diverse Ecosystem

Beach Residences - Ritz-Carlton - Lido Key, Florida​South of Longboat Key is Lido Key, with St. Armand’s Circle and the John Ringling Causeway connecting to the mainland and Sarasota. Single family homes and The Beach Residences condominiums are situated close to South Lido Beach and Ted Sperling Park, with their sandy beaches and woodland nature trails.

St. Armands Circle on Lido Key is popular among the locals with its boutique shops and casual dining. In the center of the roundabout is the circle of the circus stars, a fitting remembrance to the many performers that made the circus the greatest show on earth. John Ringling had the idea for turning the area into one of the best cultural centers in the nation. His property on the mainland built in the 1920s is open to the public daily. The Ringling Museum of Art on the sprawling property is a lasting tribute to his legacy and his support of the local area.

The Beach Residences condominiums on Lido Key rests on over 400 feet of white sand that fronts the Gulf of Mexico. These properties are offered in floor plans from one to four bedrooms up to 5,200 square feet of living space overlooking the gulf. Amenities include an outdoor pool & spa, social room with media, bar & fireplace, elegant boardroom, billiards room, state of the art fitness center, theater with tiered seating and two guest suites. A concierge on staff will help you arrange your day’s activities on the keys or in Sarasota and beyond.

But you don’t have to travel far for a rich cultural experience. Sarasota was ranked as the top art destination in the nation for small cities by readers of American Style Magazine in 2012. Bradenton to the north was rated second by readers of the magazine. This distinguishes these two adjoining cities as one of the top cultural areas in United States.

The Beach Residences are close to Ted Sperling Park with a hefty population of mangrove trees that is a dream for those who want to explore these waterways on a kayak or canoe that are created naturally by the growth of these trees. A nature trail winds through the park and is an ideal location for bird watching in this diverse ecosystem that covers 100 acres. On the south end of the park are sandy beaches to greet the Gulf of Mexico and the inlet to Sarasota Bay on Big Sarasota Pass. This park is open throughout the year and is maintained by Sarasota County.

If golf is your interest, a short drive to Sarasota and nearby Longboat Key uncovers a rich area for fine green grass courses. Tennis is a popular recreational sport on the island. Lido Key is also close to many fine marinas and yacht clubs. With all the water that surrounds you there are plenty of opportunities for beach or deep sea fishing.
