Vacationing on Anna Maria Island

One of Florida’s West Coast Gems

Anna Maria Island, FL is a barrier island located just off the west coast of Florida, just north of Sarasota and across Tampa Bay from St Petersburg. The island stretches for seven miles in total, and the coast is lined with soft, sandy beaches along the whole length.

An Easy to Navigate, Flat Sandy Island

Never more than two miles across, the whole island is served by handy trolley buses, and traveling between beaches is simple. Getting to Anna Maria Island, FL is almost as easy. Tampa Airport is just a few miles to the southeast, and has connections to all major US cities. There are regular shuttle buses from the airport to Anna Maria Island, as well as car rental services if you need your own vehicle.

One of America’s Best Places to Rent a Boat

While you can rent a car or 4x4 during your stay, it’s more fun to rent a sailing or powerboat during your stay. There are marinas with boat hire companies at Bradenton Bay and Bimini Bay, and you can hop between quays in your rental craft, seeing every inch of the island’s coast.

It’s not all about beaches on Anna Maria Island. You can also hire kayaks and paddle to Leffis Key and the mangrove tunnels in Robinson Preserve. Both are magical natural locations, and are full of birdlife, turtles and marine life.

3. Shop at the island’s vibrant markets

Shopping is a major activity on Anna Maria Island, and each beach seems to have its own market. One of the best places to head for craft bargains is Bradenton Beach’s Bridge Street Market (open on Saturdays), and you can shop for fine art at Bradenton’s Village of the Arts as well.
