Favorite Things to Do: The Beach at Sunset

The Beach at Sunset

Sunsets on the west coast of Florida are breathtaking! What is your favorite sunset beach?  I actually have two: Anna Maria Island in Manatee County just north of Sarasota and Lido Beach in Sarasota.

Anna Maria Island has a great waterfront restaurant, The Sandbar. We have been going there since 1999 when we first visited the Bradenton Barrier Islands of Coquina Beach, Holmes Beach and Anna Maria Island. The sunsets are so spectacular that they have a “guess the sunset time” contest each night. The winner receives a bottle of champagne.

Lido Beach is one of our favorite beaches so we spend more sunset nights there than anywhere else. If you want to see a Lido Beach sunset, watch this video I took a few years ago:

At Siesta Key on Sunday nights, they have a drum circle. If you have not been before, put it on your bucket list! It is near the public beach. People of all ages gather to enjoy the sunset together accompanied by a group of drummers. Feel like dancing to the drums- go for it! Celebrate the sunset with others.

Sitting on the beach at sunset on the Florida west coast exemplifies the beauty of nature in the setting sun. After writing this, I feel the need to get a sunset “fix” and think we will go tonight to enjoy the wondrous sunset yet again!
