The Centre Shops
is located just north of Beach Castle Resort and includes shopping options of art galleries, restaurants, a dry cleaner, pharmacy and a UPS store – all the ingredients for the perfect spot to pick-up all your necessary beach essentials and remembrances. If you’re looking for higher-end shopping, traveling to Lido Key’s
St. Armand’s Circle

in a poker game that turned the sister island of
into a world-famous attraction.
