Sarasota County Lifeguard duty hours:

Beach lifeguards will be on duty from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. daily on Sarasota County's public beaches, which are Lido Beach, Siesta Beach, Nokomis Beach, North Jetty Beach, Venice Beach and Manasota Beach.

Sarasota County Beach Parks, Lost and Found Items:

Lost items on the beach waiting to be claimed The method of tracking and, or holding lost items by Sarasota County is dependent on the particular beach lifeguard office.

On all beaches with the exception of Siesta Beach, when an item has been brought to a lifeguard stand on the beach it may stay in that lifeguard stand until the end of the day. The hope is that the owner of that watch, cell phone, or key will return asking for it.

If that does not happen, then the item will end up in the lifeguard office. There it stays waiting to be claimed. The process on Siesta Beach is different. Due to the number of patrons who visit the beach daily the lost items tend to be greater in number. Usually an item is turned over to a lifeguard at the lifeguard stand. If an item is not claimed by the end of the work day the lifeguards will bring the item to the Parks and Recreation Office at Siesta Beach.

The Parks and Recreation staff will inventory the lost item and store it according to date. There it waits until claimed. For information about lost items contact Sarasota County Lifeguard Operations at 941-861-5000.
