The island of Anna Maria is a tropical paradise, with its white-sand beaches, azure water and peaceful lifestyle. What makes it so special is that it is surrounded by water, from the Gulf of Mexico to the west and Sarasota Bay to the south. Its inhabitants are friendly and laid-back, making sure you feel right at home during your stay on this beautiful island.
Anna Maria Island's seven and one-half miles of magnificent white-sand beaches extend from Tampa Bay in the north to Longboat Key Pass at its southernmost tip. Each of three small villages—Anna Maria in the north, Holmes Beach at mid-island and Bradenton Beach to the south—boasts its own special character. The beach fronts are dotted with piers where anglers fish from rustic structures while sailboats skim across the azure blue coastline.
Throughout the island, narrow winding streets give way to lush tropical growth that embellishes a mixture of contemporary and historic buildings. The "Old Florida" resort offers families a place where they can spend their vacation year after year.
