Bradenton Beach FL USA – The Secret Shell Beach
Do you love to walk in the ocean and look for shells? And other Ocean Treasures?
Every Ocean is Unique
That is one of my favorite things to do. However if you have seen many of the beaches here in the USA or around the world you will see that not all ocean beaches are the same. You will notice that the sand, the shells or lack of, and the textures and colors are different and unique to each ocean that you visit.
Brandenton Beach is one of my personal favorites because is is close to Anna Marie Island, the place to go for shells and ocean treasures.
Bradenton Beach is a small friendly Island community of both permanent and seasonal residents with lots of natural resources, it is located on Florida’s southwest coast in Manatee County on the Gulf of Mexico between Tampa and Sarasota. Brandenton’s Gulf islands are comprised of two islands Anna Marie Island and Longboat Key accessible by bridges that will lead you there.
