This is one of the most beautiful beaches in the entire United States. The sand is so white and very clean. The water is clear blue and the waves fun.

Bradenton Beach is a wonderful, hidden gem. It has miles of white sand beaches to walk, lounge and play. A more layed back vacation.

Combine beach and town and you get a wonderful place to spend a few days. White sandy beach and the ocean waves are mild. Boaters come right up to the shore and share good times with you.

Stayed at the Tortuga Beach Resort which is directly across the road from beach access. Beautiful beach and well kept. Wasn't crowded at all for this time of year. Sunsets were gorgeous and the white sand is what you enjoy on the Gulf side of Florida. Going back soon.

This is our favorite beach on the island. It's small enough without the large crowds. The sand is white and soft and the water beautiful (depending on the time of year). Great location for walking around the Bridge St. area too. Plenty of shops, restaurants, mini golf, ice cream and more.

We live in Florida and this was our first time here. What a great beach! Clean, quiet and nice to just relax and tan.

Nice beach without all the stuff farther north on St Pete. No problem parking or getting to. Definitely the place I prefer for just waking, sitting, sunning, or relaxing, Would bring kids to play. No high rises. Beautiful sunset spot.
