Wonderful family vacation

We stayed steps from a beautiful white sandy beach with accessibility to shops and restaurants. What more can you ask?

This is a great beach. Lots of parking, but you might want to get there early! Nice that this beach has a restaurant, as well.

Be sure to stop here when you're on the bay side of Bradenton Beach. There are 3 AMOB locations in Bradenton/Sarasota and this one is closest to the Gulf. It's a fun spot to eat and drink while you watch the all the people fishing on the pier from morning till night. You can also see the Cortez Road/Hwy 664... More

Quick visit for my son's baseball team from University of Mount Union, OH, after a baseball game at IMG. We had dinner at The Beach House while the boys relaxed and played on the beach. Very clean and gorgeous sunset. Wish we had more time to enjoy the area, we'll definitely be back again!

Try to arrive by 10 am or earlier especially in high season which I believe starts in March. There is ample parking but it fills up fast on good days

White sand. Turquoise water. Few people. Great day. We escaped here from fort Myers because I had read it was less crowded. Packed a picnic. Got some sun. The went to the Beach House for dinner.

One of if not the best beach I've ever been to. Beautiful sand, easy parking (though could be difficult if busier) and walking distance to eateries and bars. Clean and not all that busy compared to other beaches. I'll be back!
