About Anna Maria Island
Nearly seven and one-half miles long, the western shore of Anna Maria Island is an arc of white sand beach, gently curving along the unbelievably blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Pelicans and seagulls wheel and dive against azure skies. Intriguing bays and bayous wind along the east shore, where graceful mangroves retain much of the Island's natural beauty.

Anna Maria Island's charm lies in its congenial air of unhurried, subtropical living. The three small municipalities on the Island each have their own character, from Bradenton Beach in the south, through Holmes Beach, the center of the Island, to tranquil Anna Maria in the north.

Recreation for most starts on the beach, but may go much further afield for the adventurous. Many opt for sailing, power boating, sail boarding or jet-skiing. Rentals and lessons are available. There are playgrounds and parks, tennis and shuffleboard courts, with a library, community center, art groups and little theatre providing other pastimes.
Colorful Macaws Dozens of small boutiques and shopping centers are scattered about the Island offering far more than the usual tourist souvenirs. More accommodations, giving you the opportunity to design a vacation which suits your dreams... and your pocketbook. Dining ranges from quaint pubs and bars to magnificent waterfront restaurants, nearly all featuring fresh seafood from local waters. The Island is home to six churches.

And all of Florida's favorite attractions: championship golf, Busch Gardens, Walt Disney World, Epcot Center, Sea World, Kennedy Space Center, Marineland, and Cypress Gardens are within easy driving distance.

Though Anna Maria Island's lifestyle is laid back and easy, a vacation here will give you the best of everything. Come visit Anna Maria Island -- your island in the sun.

Just south of Tampa Bay and a few miles west of Bradenton, Anna Maria Island is easily reached by I-75 and I-275, US 41 and US 301.

Tampa, St. Petersburg and Sarasota are all within an hour's drive. Bradenton-Sarasota Airport offers regularly scheduled commercial flights. And the Intracoastal Waterway is only a few hundred yards east of the Island.

Swept by mild westerly breezes, the Island is virtually air-conditioned year round. Average annual temperature is 71.4 degrees, varying from a low average of 55.3 in January to an average high of 81.6 in August.
Heron wading in the waves First named Anna Maria Cay by the Spanish in the 1500's, it was known for a time as Palm Key by sailors for the royal palms planted on the north point to aid in navigation. The first American settlers arrived in 1840.
