Address: Bradenton Beach
Bradenton Beach boasts four miles of lush coastline and is located at the southernmost tip of Anna Maria Island, on the Gulf coast of Florida. The easiest way to get around the region is by car, although the MCAT bus provides transportation throughout the Bradenton area. Street parking by the beach is available but limited – so you’ll need to arrive early to secure a place, especially on weekends.
