Here, your boat isn't just a toy but an extension of your home — easy to get on and off for quick getaways or leisurely days out. At the heart of the island's social scene is Lido Village. With its quaint shops, trendy restaurants, and an overall ambiance that's both upscale and welcoming, it's easy to fall in love with the community here.
 
Lido Isle’s chief characteristic is its exclusivity. At just 0.39 square miles, the island is home to some of the most expensive real estate in Orange County.

Dining and Entertainment

Regarding culinary experiences, Lido Isle is a treasure trove of options. Sabatino's offers an Italian dining experience unlike any other; warm, attentive service complements an expansive menu full of delightful choices. The atmosphere is cozy and elegant, perfect for any occasion.
 
Meanwhile, Nobu elevates dining to an art form. Here, the ambiance marries elegance with excitement, and the service is exceptional. The diverse and artistic menu tantalizes the palate, and you're guaranteed an extraordinary experience from start to finish. Because it’s right on the water, guests can dock their boats and dine with gorgeous views of the harbor. It’s a breathtaking place to enjoy a meal outside. 
 
With its impeccable service and breathtaking location, Malibu Farm captures the essence of coastal dining. The food is tasty and fresh, with a menu that's as inviting as the panoramic harbor views and a delightfully casual vibe. 
 
From unique cocktails to culinary creativity, Fable & Spirit and Bear Flag Fish Company offer something for everyone. The former is celebrated for its fantastic atmosphere and delectable menu and is currently a trendy and high-end experience, while Bear Flag takes a more relaxed approach with its sumptuous seafood offerings and gorgeous views. 
 
But life isn't just about good food — how about good fashion? Outlets like Elyse Walker, LoveShackFancy, and Stoney Clover Lane offer an unparalleled retail experience, each with unique style and exceptional customer service.
 

Things to Do

If you're looking to soak up the local culture, joining one of the many boat clubs or becoming a member of the Lido Isle Yacht Club is the way to go. Here, camaraderie and a shared love for the water form lasting bonds.
 
An absolute must-do is to rent a boat from Duffy — originally founded by Marshall “Duffy” Duffield, Duffy boats are iconic and provide an incredible experience. Bring food and drink and make a night out of it — if you order a charcuterie board from A Restaurant nearby, you can take it on the boat with you and feast on the water.
 
Looking to dive into festive celebrations? Mark your calendar for the Christmas Boat Parade and the Fourth of July festivities. They are nothing short of spectacular, and the community spirit is palpable.
