Welcome to Anna Maria Island, Florida

Once a best-kept secret among Floridians, Anna Maria Island has always been known for its sugar-white beach coastline, emerald green and blue Gulf waters and quaint business districts. Today, it is known as a vacation favorite among local, national and international travelers. From honeymooners to Hollywood film crews, youngsters to the young-at-heart, people from around the world have discovered what’s awaiting you – A Piece of Paradise.

Enjoy a sunrise overlooking Tampa Bay and a picture-perfect Florida sunset over the Gulf of Mexico all in one day! Anna Maria Island is an ideal place to get away from it all. Beautiful tropical foliage embraces you as you relax, watch the dolphins play, and the manatees glide through the water.

Anna Maria Island is a place where “old” Florida charm can still be found, flip flops are a way of life and the speed limit never exceeds 35mph. High rise condos and fast food restaurants are pleasantly absent from our pristine vacation destination.

Endless Activity Options

You need never leave the area to find fun and relaxation. Our 7-mile-long stretch of island, sitting in the Gulf of Mexico, is home to the island’s three cities – City of Bradenton Beach (to the south), City of Holmes Beach (in the center) and the City of Anna Maria (to the north). All three cities provide access to spectacular beaches, accommodations and outdoor activities.

Take a step back in time just off island in Cortez Village. Across the Intracoastal waterway, Cortez is one of the last remaining working fishing villages on Florida’s southwest Gulf coast. The historic working waterfront of Cortez has a fascinating Florida Maritime Museum, housed in the restored historic 1912 schoolhouse, located on the park-like grounds of the Cortez Nature Preserve.

Enjoy a day at the beach, walk barefoot along the surf and watch the kids play in the sand. Stroll along our pristine beaches and commune with nature. Dine in award-winning restaurants, where you can enjoy fresh fish on a pier or sip tropical martinis while enjoying live music at various spots island wide. Go shopping in our specialty shops and boutiques all along the island. Take the free trolley where you want to go, hop off for an ice cream or sweet delight, and hop on the next trolley to continue your journey. Our friendly, laid back way of life and endless activity options will keep you coming back again and again.
