Anna Maria Island Beaches
There’s nothing quite like the feeling of warm sand beneath your toes.

Anna Maria Island Tourist Attractions
There’s much more than pristine white beaches and perfect waves on Anna Maria Island. Taking a break from the sun and sand doesn’t mean hiding inside. From art galleries to wildlife and spas, there’s plenty more to do on the island besides lounging at the beach. We have selected some of our favourites.
Holmes Beach Vacations
Holmes Beach is known as the most residential of the three towns on Anna Maria Island. It is, in fact, home to the most vacation rentals on the island. However, there’s more to do in Holmes Beach besides renting a quaint cottage (although that’s recommended, too). Below are a few Holmes Beach favorites.
Bradenton Beach Vacations
With beaches running the entire length of the city in Bradenton Beach, it was difficult to imagine doing much more than curling my toes in the white sand and watching manatees swim by. While the town’s beaches definitely warrant a visit (or two or three) I was pleasantly surprised to discover that a lot more than surf and sun is happening in Bradenton.
City of Anna Maria Vacations
My favorite part of Anna Maria Island is its laid-back, decidedly unpretentious atmosphere. This isn’t Miami or Palm Beach. The high rise condos, flashy cars, and pseudo-sophistication of other Floridian cities are gloriously absent here. With painted docks, remnants of piers jutting out of the sea, and quaint beach cottages, Anna Maria Island is a throwback to the quieter, simpler days of “Old Florida.”
