2013 TripAdvisor Certificate
TripAdvisor Ranked #2 Hotel in Bradenton Beach
Your Vacation Street of Dreams.
Tradewinds Beach Resort is located on quaint Anna Maria Island in the Gulf of Mexico off Southwest Florida's fabled Sun Coast. This charming, old-fashioned resort has pastel cottages covered with tangles of jasmine and bougainvillea that look like something seen on a postcard a century ago. The romantic cottages line both sides of a private street that ends at a large heated pool set among palm trees, and a fishing pier that juts into Sarasota Bay. Just across Gulf Drive, at our sister resort of Tortuga Beach Resort, is a private white sand beach beside that glorious turquoise water you're coming for - and sunset views that promise to break your heart with their beauty. Tradewinds is pet friendly!
