Getaways Close to Home: Best Beaches in Sarasota

When you call The Founders Club home, it's easy to while away your leisure hours with our bountiful amenities in Sarasota’s premier golf and country club community.  But in addition to the onsite delights of this luxury home community nestled amongst acres of picturesque lakes and preserves, Sarasota also offers an array of beautiful white sand beaches that are perfect for a mini getaway close to home. Many of our beaches have even been awarded the "Blue Wave" Certification by the Clean Beaches Coalition for their commitment to cleanliness and environmental conservation. Here are just a few of the best beaches in Sarasota, but you'll have to try them all yourself to find your personal favorite:

Caspersen Beach

One of the "Blue Wave" beaches, Caspersen Beach is located on beautiful, secluded Venice Island. The perfect spot to truly get away from it all, at Caspersen, you can enjoy stunning views, wildlife sightings, and clear, turquoise water. A totally undeveloped beach, Caspersen gives you the feeling of being alone on your own private island; there are no hotels or homes to spoil your view of the Gulf.

Lido Beach

Another gorgeous beach with the stamp of approval from the Clean Beaches Coalition, Lido Beach is actually three beaches in one. Arranged along Lido Key, the three beaches at Lido Beach offer clean white sand, verdant copses of oak and cedar pond trees, and warm breezes off the coast.

Brohard Beach

The perfect beach to enjoy with man's best friend, Brohard is the only dog-friendly beach in the Sarasota area. The perfect spot to pack a picnic lunch, Frisbee, and plenty of energy to run across the sand and romp in the surf - your pup will thank you for a trip to the sunny Sarasota coast.

Siesta Beach

Named the "best beach in America," Siesta Beach is the crown jewel of Sarasota's many wonderful beaches. Enjoy powdery white sand, clear, clean waters, and an array of activities for families to enjoy. This beach is full of amenities, including public areas for grilling, bathing, playing, and parking, but the smoke-free designation keeps this busy beach clean and enjoyable for everyone.
