Surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico’s warm emerald waters, Tampa and Sarasota Bays, Anna Maria Island is where dolphins and manatees raise their young and where loggerhead turtles nest on its sugar-white shores.

Old Florida charm is the essence of Anna Maria Island a seven mile stretch of pristine living with a sandy beach no more than a walk or bike-ride away.
There are three cities on Anna Maria… each with its own special vibe.

Located at the northern tip, the City of Anna Maria is a quiet residential community with an abundance of rental homes and cottages. Most residents prefer to ride their bikes, as the “City” is really not a City but, a quaint little village.

Pine Street on Anna Maria Island serves as the main thoroughfare from bay to beach where charming family owned stores and cafes are housed in quaint Florida cottages. There’s only... "one"... small shopping center with novelty shops, island clothing and an ice cream parlor. Many artists reside in the area where nearby galleries collect and brandish their wares.

The city’s Anna Maria Beach is accessible by parking and walking the side streets along Gulf Drive. This spectacular beach has expansive views of the Gulf of Mexico, St. Petersburg and the Skyway Bridge.
A short stroll from your brightly colored towel will lead to a landmark on Anna Maria island called Sandbar Restaurant. You’ll find tables right in the sand affording spectacular views of Tampa Bay, the Skyway Bridge, St. Petersburg and don’t forget those remarkable sunsets!

The beach on Anna Maria Island is huge and extends around the tip of the island. Narrow streets may hamper weekend parking. So, arrive early. “Florida is a clever little peninsula. Just when you think you’ve seen everything under its proverbial sun, you stumble across a place like Anna Maria Island – a seven-mile slip of cushy white sand tucked in the Gulf of Mexico where you can dump the car, rent a bike, swim in smooth, teal waters and eat remarkably well.” New York Times
