Lido Beach is a beach in Somalia's capital, Mogadishu, which overlooks the Somali Sea. The name Lido derives from the Italian word for "beach". Lido is also very popular amongst locals.

The beach in northern Mogadishu was developed in the late 1930s for the Italian colonists living in the capital of Italian Somalia. In the 1950s it was fully developed.[citation needed]

After prolonged decades of war and anarchy in the capital, from 1991 the beach fell into disuse.

Today, hundreds of families come to relax on Mogadishu's coastline each weekend. People stay out at Lido Beach way past dusk to watch the beautiful night skyline and the deep blue ocean. This is a perfect place to get the fresh perspective of a rediscovered Somalia.

Somalia has the longest coastline in Africa with 3100 km along the Indian Ocean, which is home to attractive beaches valuable for tourism. To make Somalia one of the biggest entertaining and tourist destination spots in Africa, Lido Beach has seafood restaurants, hotels, and parks.

The Somali diaspora plays an important role in recovering Mogadishu, building new luxury downtown and beaches like the village, Ocean restaurant, Beder restaurant, Lido seafood restaurant, City Palace and many more that attract international tourists.[citation needed] There are many newly established businesses here.
