“Great place to snorkel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

This beach is a little different than some of the other area beaches. But the kids had the best time snorkelling here. i have never seen them stay in the water so long.

“lots of space for parking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

One of the best places in the aspect of parking spaces and nice access to beach that I've seen, we took the little nature walk on the bay side, which was nice, the weather wasn't too good, but we could tell by the amount of parking spaces, picnic tables, etc that it would be a great place to take kids, playgrounds galore....

“Enjoy the beach, laying in the sand or from the bike trail.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

A great Sunday afternoon was enjoyed biking along the trail on Longboat Key. Shops and restaurants along the way, also take time and enjoy the gulf view.

The town was renovating the parking lot after a hurricane, but all in all a nice shaded setting. Long beach to walk1

“Unpretentious Family Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

This beach has the fine sugar white sand that the area is famous for. There is plentiful parking, a barbecue area, snack bar and play area. The nearby town of Bradenton Beach has a low key beach town vibe. No high rises or fancy restaurants, just a great place for a family to spend a day at the beach.
