Why Choose Anna Maria Island?

why choose anna maria island for your beach vacation?

When you’re deciding where to spend your well-deserved beach vacation, we know there are a lot of options in Florida! The Gulf of Mexico beaches offer soft sugary white sands and calm clear turquoise waters. During the Autumn and Winter months the weather is beautiful and mild. But what else makes Anna Maria Island stand out above all the others?

Let’s start with the reason you’re probably choosing this part of Florida. The BEACH!

Anna Maria Island has many beach access points all over its 7 miles. There are 3 main beaches to visit; Bean Point, Manatee Public, and Coquina Beach. Bean Point Beach, on the northernmost part of the Island, features a quiet and relaxed vibe. Sunrise and sunsets here are especially breathtaking. Manatee Public Beach has a few more crowds, but also features a fun beach café, easy access to the beach, and plenty of parking! Coquina Beach is furthest to the south. You can watch the boats pass by, take a Segway tour, and the wildlife watching here is the best on the Island. Birds, dolphins, and manatees play in the clear and beautiful water. You may even see mermaids if you look hard enough!

Anna Maria Island is a small resort city and has kept its small-town charm but the list of attractions and events is endless! Let’s talk about all the options for activities and watersports on Anna Maria Island. Rent a Boat, go Parasailing or Horseback Riding on the water, Rent a Kayak, etc. There are art galleries featuring local artists and crafts, restaurants with local seafood, and plenty of local festivals. The Anna Maria Historical Society with the Anna Maria Island Jail are a must for an Instagram photo op! And, no matter where you are on Anna Maria Island you are never more than a 10-minute walk to the Gulf of Mexico beaches. There are plenty of fun spots to hear live music and local bars to throw back a few cold ones in the evenings after a beach day. AMI has the free trolley that you can hop-on and hop-off to get almost anywhere you will want to visit. No need to drive once you check in at one of our Luxury Vacation Rentals.
