anna maria island vacation

Taking a vacation to Anna Maria Island is an ideal way to spend your free time this summer, with the incredible scenic beaches, crystal clear water, amazing deals on Anna Maria Island house rentals, plentiful ocean activities, awe-inspiring nature preserves, and so many other things to do on and near the island.

If you’re still on the fence, below are 7 of the best reasons you should start planning your trip today.

Reason #1 – The incredible scenic beaches

There’s nothing quite like the tantalizing and gorgeous white sand beaches of Anna Maria Island as one of the top reasons to convince you to go. You’ll have your choice of popular family-friendly public beach parks with full facilities like Coquina and Manatee Public Beaches, along with more private laid back beaches with gorgeous scenery.

Reason #2 – Breathtaking ocean sunsets

The incredible sunsets are another top reason to visit Anna Maria Island; as there are very few buildings blocking your path. Several restaurants on the island also offer some of the most amazing waterfront sunset views that you’ll find in the entire region.

The sunsets are dazzling and vivid and offer the perfect romantic setting. You can see the sun set from multiple vantage points and waterfront house rentals on Anna Maria Island.

Reason #3 – An “Old Florida” setting and hospitality

One of the unique features of Anna Maria Island is the “Old Florida” culture that it maintains to this day. Locals here are friendly, warm and laid back.

The island lacks a lot of the modern development that has shaped other Florida barrier islands and remains one of the few places where you can experience something similar to what Florida used to be like decades ago.

Reason #4 – Amazing outdoor adventures

The outdoor adventures on Anna Maria Island are plentiful, and just a few that you’ll have to choose from include: thrilling dolphin boat tours, kayaking through exotic protected areas, swimming at exclusive scenic beaches, biking, snorkeling, stand up paddle boarding, hiking, parasailing and so much more.

Reason #5 – Affordable and spacious house rentals on Anna Maria Island

You’ll find spacious and welcoming Anna Maria Island house rentals, with features like dock access for boats and fishing, on-site pools, private beach access, proximity to top rated restaurants and stores, spacious living and dining rooms, linen service, full kitchens and so much more to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

Reason #6 – You don’t need a car

You definitely won’t need a car to get around Anna Maria Island once you arrive, as the free trolley is more than sufficient for getting to most parts of the island.

Along with the trolley, Anna Maria Island is very walkable, and you can even rent a golf cart or bicycle if you want to get around faster.

Reason #7 – Proximity to many other attractions

Although there’s enough to do to spend a full vacation on Anna Maria Island itself, you’ll have plenty of other attractions in the Bradenton and Sarasota area to explore such as incredible golf courses, museums, art galleries and shows, restaurants, local events, boutiques, nature preserves, and historic sites.

This summer, you can easily spend weeks on Anna Maria Island experiencing everything it has to offer. One of the best ways to do so is by renting one of our exclusive and reasonably priced house rentals on Anna Maria Island.
