Fun times. Walk out on the pier. Visit the local artisans. Eat at AOB- Anna Maria Oyster bar. See the boats, the water and the sights. Good food with happy people

Bradenton beach is ok, we prefer Anna Marie, Holmes or long boat beaches better. Bradenton beach is closer to where we stay so we hit it the 1st day.

Love the soft sand, clear water, great shops and fabulous restaurants. Easy to walk around or grab the trolley. Lots of fun little family owned businesses. Fell in love the first time and keep going back!!!!

Bradenton beach is beautiful. Nice crystal clear water. Would definitely recommend. We stayed at the silver surf. Their private beach was awesome. No shells that hurt your feet, very relaxing, not too packed for being holiday weekend.

Great place for a vacation, Day trip or getaway. Plenty to do for everyone. Restaurants directly on the Gulf of Mexico.. Come watch the dolphins and listen to the local musician's while eating the catch Of The Day!

This is by far my favorite beach in Florida! Gorgeous white soft sand beaches that aren't too crowded, beautiful calm water, tide pools, shells galore, and close parking.

Came here several times over a two week vacation. Like the view and the food was delicious. The Bloody Mary and mimosas specials were great. I even got a gift card to eat here again

We visited for 9 days. This was a very nice beach. Saw a wedding, a beautiful sunrise and spotted a few dolphins. Can't wait to come back.

Beautiful beach respected by both locals and visitors i.e. it's clean! I loved taking early morning swim then sitting on the beach watching birds fishing and people walking. Had an 'original' beach hut rental, nothing to look at outside but WOW inside! Right on the...More

I did not see any golf carts on the beach. However there is a private shuttle service, which I think may be free depending upon which resort you are staying at, that is golf cart based that takes folks around.

I'm not quite sure, our tournament was based in Winterhaven so we only had games at IMG one day. When we left the facility for the beach it was about 4pm. Traffic was heavy at that time. Beach is not far away, just a couple... More
