Beautiful Beach!

I love this beach. I visit on Bridge Street and usually sit near the Moose club. They always have tunes. View is beautiful.

We would recommend going here. Stay as close to the beach as there is access to lots of restaurants and fun things to do. We just walked across the street to get to the beach. The weather in January was warm. The water is cool but there were people going into the water. We relaxed a lot.

Lovely beach, lined with people's homes, not hotels. Some have chairs in the sand waiting for socials or sunsets. Walkable and some hard pack. No pets permitted on some of it. Gorgeous when the sun shines. Locals believe it to be a safe area. It is a Beautiful beach area.

Love it. Safe, friendly and pretty a great place to visit with walking a pleasure along the shoreline or on the street. Great market at Coquina beach with lots of local produce

I would highly recommend Bradenton Beach to all my friends and family. Being from Chicago, I've never seen a beach so clean. Bradenton is also more private, so I love that there's not a ton of people there!

Perfect to go with your family. Almost empty, limpid water, calm sea (without waves), white sand. Just to sit and have a relaxing time. It's easy to rent stand up, snorkel or other devices to have fun. Plenty of sea life, you can see crabbers and fishes without googles! If you want a relaxing day with your family, the perfect...

Mah. I have been to better places, the beach was a beach mostly devoid of people. was there for a wk, not much to do for people looking for something to do such as us.

An extremely clean and safe area. Nice combination of rental availability as well a residents. Free shuttle bus and golf carts are the way to go. Eliminates excess traffic.

This beach is perfect for those who want to get away from it all. It is a small town period not a lot of action. There are some bars and restaurants but the night life is not what you go here for. This is a place to relax. I saw more birds here than people

Not the best beach out there but definitely worth the visit, especially at sunset! Visit the nearby restaurants as well, such a nice area!
