Baywatch is within walking distance to many restaurants, shops, and activities. Renters can leave their car in one of the covered parking spots and walk, bike or take the trolley and explore the seven-mile island. Some favorite local restaurants include Smokehouse, Wicked Cantina, Beach House, and Gulf Drive Cafe. Historic Bridge Street Village (original wooden bridge was once the only means to access the island) with shops, restaurants, and a fishing pier in bridge’s place;
Leffis Key with nature trails and beautiful views, and Anna Maria Island City Pier with fishing docks, restaurants, and shopping are great places for families to explore. Baywatch is the perfect spot to enjoy the sun rise through the treetops over the bay, build castles in the sand, take a dip in the pool, and watch the sunset from the beautiful white sands of Bradenton Beach.
