Anna Maria Island

21. September 2017 by SunshineState Network

Anna Maria Island is an island off the west coast of Florida. This beautiful island has three white beaches and is located off Tampa Bay.

Anna Maria Island has three main cities: Anna Maria City in the North, Holmes Beach in the center and Bradenton Beach in the South.

Bridges provide access to the mainland and to Longboat Key. From the northern tip of the island, visitors can enjoy a view of Sunshine Skyway Bridge, Tampa and St. Petersburg.

Away from the buzz of the bigger Florida cities, Anna Maria Island has a calm and peaceful atmosphere that is perfect for a relaxing vacation. The best-known beaches on the island are Coquina Beach in Bradenton Beach, Manatee County Beach in Holmes Beach and Bay Front Park close to Anna Maria City.

Anna Maria City Pier, located on the Tampa Bay side of the island, is a popular fishing spot. And of course, you’ll find lots of onlookers, who are curious about the “catch of the day”.

Apart from fishing, the piers on Anna Maria Island also have their own restaurants where you can enjoy a good meal to round off your day.

During the day, the beautiful beaches on the Gulf of Mexico invite you to relax. At night, you can take a leisurely stroll on a moonlit beach.
