Manatee Public Beach is located in Holmes Beach where Manatee Avenue runs right into the Gulf of Mexico. Manatee Public Beach has free parking, picnic tables, public restrooms, a playground on the beach for children, a fishing pier, a café right on the beach with food and drinks, and a lifeguard on duty.
Manatee Public Beach is a great place to spend the day playing volleyball, fishing, swimming, or just relaxing in the Florida sun. If you are enjoying your Anna Maria Island Vacation and are in need of transportation jump aboard the Anna Maria Island Trolley (it’s free!!!) and can take you to all of Anna Maria Island’s Beaches. When you get hungry or feel like a cold drink you don’t even need to leave the beach, take a stroll to the café at Manatee Public Beach, they offer both inside and outside dining areas, I’m sure will find a sandwich or a tasty snack to cure your appetite. Next to the café is a gift shop with souvenirs and blow up rafts. Manatee Public Beach also has a small beach bar where you can grab a cold beer and watch the sun slowly slip away into the Gulf Of Mexico.
