the place is very clean, relaxing and crystal clear water!! I had a great time. It was kind of wavy but not as bad as cocoa beach. This is my favorite place!

It is the most beautiful place in Fl. We had been coming down here for 20 yrs, then moved here. The locals at Bradenton beach are wonderful people, great restaurants, great activities and fun. The gulf is gorgeous always! The tourism on our beach has exploded! It's amazing.
