Best Places to Take Your Dog While Vacationing on Anna Maria Island

Booking a vacation home offers many great benefits when it comes to planning your vacation—and one of those awesome perks is being able to bring along your fury companion with you! With many pet friendly homes available, you can book your getaway to Anna Maria Island without having to leave your four-legged pal at home. They are considered a part of your family after all!

From walking the streets of Pine Avenue to playing fetch at the Palma Sola Bay Park—you and your dog are sure to enjoy all of the wonderful things that Anna Maria Island has to offer. While dogs are not allowed on the beaches of Anna Maria Island, the Palma Sola Bay Park,just before the causeway, gives your dog the opportunity to experience a true beach vacation. With lots of sand to roll in, waves to catch and other canine companions to play with—your dog will surely enjoy every minute spent on this dog friendly beach.

If you have an active dog, enjoy stunning sights and nature trails, than you must pay a visit to the Robinson Preserve while visiting the Island. Here you can walk the 600+ acre coastal preserve located in North West Bradenton-just a short 10 minute drive from Anna Maria Island. Climb the 53 foot tall tower to panoramic views of Tampa Bay, pack a picnic and enjoy an outdoor snack and take the several different hiking paths that lead through Mangrove forests and offer unforgettable water views. Don’t forget your sunscreen, hat and lots of water!
