Anna Maria Beach, Anna Maria Island
- Explore one of west coast Florida’s most beautiful beaches
- Enjoy a spot of fishing, birding or kayaking in this tropical paradise
- Visit the nearby family-run restaurants and charming boutiques
Enjoy the best in pristine white-sand beaches across this seven mile strip of coastline. As one of Florida’s best-kept secrets, you can be sure of a peaceful and idyllic getaway at Anna Maria Beach – without the usual crowds found on the Gulf’s more famous beach destinations. Boasting a Caribbean-like climate, fantastic water sports and recreational activities, and one of the region’s best sunsets, Anna Maria Beach is hard to beat.
Stop for lunch, or a dessert or cocktail, at the beachfront Sandbar Restaurant, as you soak up the spectacular ocean views. Grab a kite, volleyball, or Frisbee and enjoy some mid-afternoon fun with the family. Once you tire of the beach, why not visit one of nature parks nearby, from which you can enjoy your own eco-tour? Whatever you plan to do with your day, make sure you come back to Anna Maria Beach before sunset. It’s one of the region’s best spots for watching the sun go down over the Gulf of Mexico.
