Staying on Anna Maria Island offers an enticing glimpse into paradise, allowing you to experience new things at every turn during your stay. This island has plenty of activities on and off the water to keep you busy. However, no visit to this hidden gem would be complete without experiencing some kind of water sport. When water surrounds you, it’s hard not to want to join in on the fun. True Floridians don’t know what a blessing it is to have the Gulf so close so they don’t enjoy it as much as they should, but if you are from a landlocked state, you understand the allure of the ocean. I believe they say something about the grass being greener on the other side. Well, that is the truth when it comes to Anna Maria Island. The entire Florida experience doesn’t get much better than this lovely little Island.
