Bradenton Beach is located in the city of Bradenton Beach and is accessed from most side streets off Gulf Drive. The beach extends north from Coquina and Cortez beaches featuring shaded parking and long views up and down the coastline. Adding to its charm is its connection to casual dining, ice cream parlors and quaint little shops.
Parking on the side streets is limited, you need to arrive early on weekends!
