The Sandcastle Resort Lido Beach




Surrounded by the picturesque flair of Lido Key and The Gulf of Mexico, The Sandcastle Resort at Lido Beach is the spot for couples to tie the knot, host a reception or rehearsal dinner or spend a honeymoon...and do it all beach-side! You will find event spaces that can be customized to fit wedding colors and themes. Make your beach wedding dreams come true by exchanging your vows under a white altar in soft rolling breezes, white-sand beaches, and azure blue water of the Gulf of Mexico. Afterwards the newlyweds can sneak off to take romantic wedding portraits as the sun sets over the tranquil waters.
