About Bradenton Beach
Bradenton Beach is a vacationer's dream of sugar sand beaches, Old Florida charm, delightful sunsets and a vast array of delicious dining with an ocean view. Sitting on the southern end of Anna Marie Island between Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, Bradenton Beach is a friendly community of 1,500 residents. Visitors to this charming community can find beachfront hotels, fine dining, unique shopping and exciting nightlife as well as plenty of waterside activities to fill their days and nights. The miles of public supervised sugar sand beaches on the Gulf side are the focal point of any visit to Bradenton Beach. The bay side of the island offers calm docking areas for local and visiting boaters. Fishing charters can be easily arranged for those who enjoy this water sport.
