Relax at The Best Beaches in Sarasota


With summer weather on its way, locals and visitors alike are ready to hit the beach to soak in some sun and beat the heat. Before you pack your new car and head out for a day in the sun, discover the Sarasota beaches that are worth a visit with the locals at Cox Mazda.

Lido Beach

An idyllic white sand beach, Lido beach is a family-friendly destination. Make a day trip of it, or spend the night at Sarasota beach resorts like the Lido Beach Resort for even more time basking in the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Not only do Lido Beach visitors get treated to a beautiful view, they can also avoid the crowds found at popular beaches like Siesta Key.

Brohard Beach Paw Park and Venice Pier

If you want to enjoy the beach with your furry family member, Brohard Beach is the only public Sarasota beach that is pet-friendly. Your pup can enjoy features like separate fenced areas for large and small dogs, doggie fountains, and doggie showers. Owners will appreciate the leash posts and available waste disposal bags, on top on human amenities like covered picnic tables and restrooms.

Known by the locals as a great shelling beach, this is the perfect place to bring your kids to find some mementos for your time in Sarasota. Additionally, prehistoric shark teeth can often be found washed up on these beaches. And, if you are really lucky, you may even be able to sneak a peek at a turtle nest!
