Anna Maria Island

Anna Maria Island is a charming barrier island bounded by the mouth of Tampa Bay. The 7 ½ mile long island is divided into 3 towns, Anna Maria to the north, Holmes Beach in the middle, and Bradenton Beach to the south. The Island is still a sleepy piece of old Florida, lined with white sugar sand beaches. Instead of high-rise condos and shopping malls, you’ll find small shops and restaurants.  Steady trade wind breezes from the Caribbean keep the climate very pleasant.
