“My favorite beach in Bradenton area...”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

The sand is white the waves are small and it makes a nice place to swim and let your kids play in the water.
The area is very clean.

“Superb Beach with Good Amenities for an All Day Visit”
Reviewed December 14, 2013

This is an excellent public beach, perfect for families, couples or time with friends.
Plenty of free parking is available in a very large lot with some trees that provide a little shade. There is a picnic area with large trees and tables between the parking lot and the beach. Restrooms, showers and water fountains are located near the main entry area. There was an impressive sand sculpture there the day we went.
The beach was very clean, wide and had a few shells for the taking.

“Beatiful unspoiled spot”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

Wide, shady and picturesque. It was very uncrowded, plenty of easy parking and beautiful white sand. There is a local market on Sundays.

“Fun in the Sun”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

Wonderful uncrowded beach. No need for an umbrella since large pine trees shade you if you so choose to sit under them. Have never failed to see either dolphin or manatees. The concessions are good, the restrooms large and well maintained.

“One of the best beaches of Florida”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

We went there on the Thanksgiving weekend. I would like to say that Longboat key is the nicest beach area in Florida. The white sand looks amazing in winter, and the water is so clear. Although, the water was too cold, but my kids, my wife and I had a very good time on the beach and kids play area. The drive from Sarasota all the way to Longboat key is so beautiful. It's so quiet, nice looking, very neat; I think mostly senior citizens/retired people live here.
