This is a fabulous and very busy beach named for the colorful little coquina clams that dot the sand. The park has several shaded picnic areas, some with grills. There are restrooms, outdoor showers, and lifeguards in season. Watch the flags for riptide and red...More

One of the finest beaches in the entire world right at my back door!!!! It is natural and has a few quaint facilities but the star here is that clear blue water and sugar sand...

Lovely beach, with great changing rooms and plenty of parking. Bathrooms available, a cafe/bar, playground for the children and a market on Wednesdays & Saturdays. The beach itself is wonderful, and the sea is amazing. A must visit.

At the southern end of Anna Maria Island, a beautiful spot with lots of amenities - lots of shaded parking, changing stations/restrooms, lifeguard stations. Beach is soft white sand, not hot even mid-day, and clean.

Gorgeous area -- convenient places to eat, use bathroom and change. Little more rustic than rest of island - great for nature lovers - but still has that gorgeous sand and water. Nature preserve right across street - easy access to restaurants and shops nearby

I love this island and this beach, but... The beach is getting worse... many people do fishing in the middle of swimming crowd.

I never actually saw people grilling on the actual beach. I did, however, see people grilling in the picnic areas. Perhaps their website will validate for you.,
