Sarasota County beaches
A week after beaches initially reopened, Sarasota County has lifted its parking restrictions and will allow beachgoers to bring chairs and coolers. While most of the county’s 35 miles of shoreline are open, there are some exceptions.
In Venice, Humphris Park (South Jetty), the Brohard Paw Park and Venice Fishing Pier will remain closed. The reopening of these facilities will be reassessed this week. Lido Beach, which is under the purview of the city of Sarasota, will remain closed.
Chairs, coolers and canopies are allowed, but visitors are not permitted to gather in groups of more than 10. Sheriff’s deputies and lifeguards will enforce social distancing and group restrictions.
County-owned parking lots are open, and there are no time restrictions.
To minimize the virus spread, public restrooms at beaches will undergo enhanced cleaning and sanitation. Concessions, playgrounds, amenities and picnic shelters will remain closed.
Water temp pushing 80. Check the red tide at Red Tide Status. …Red Tide Map
