Anna Maria Island
Gulf Coast of Florida
Anna Maria is Florida's best kept secret. It is a small barrier island located just off Sarasota and linked at the southern end to Longboat key. This rustic island is often referred to as "The Cornwall of Florida" and is surrounded by the beautiful warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. At Just 7 miles long and in parts only 300 feet wide, the islands main attraction is it's stunning turquoise blue waters edged by pristine silky white sand beaches, that are backed by an abundance of gently swaying tropical palms.
The Island has a laid back rustic feel and has retained the flavour and charm of "Old Style Florida". With a wide range of luxury accomodation from 2 bedroom condominiums, up to 6 bedroom luxury beachfront villas, we can offer an excellent choice of accomodation. High rise buildings are banned here and there are no fast food restaurants to be found on this paradise Island where flip flops are a way of life. The pace of life is slow and relaxing and the speed limit never exceeds 35mph.
Bicycle hire is the best way to explore the Island where you can cycle along the beautifully landscaped tropical paths, for such a small Island there is however a large selection of fantastic restaurants, with some of the best seafood in Florida. There are also some lovely beachside restaurants where you can literally dine with your toes in the sand whilst listening to talented local musicians.
As well as beach life Anna Maria also boasts some fantastic art galleries and museums as well as quaint Floridian churches. There are also 2 piers where dolphin spotting and fishing is a popular past time, there is also an abundance of pretty shops and boutiques dotted throughout the Island selling local produce.
Watersports enthusiasts will not be disappointed with the array of activities on offer, and horseback riding along the beautiful shores is also very popular. There are a host of other activities which will keep the entire family entertained and for the ultimate convenience there is a free Island shuttle bus that travels around the Island throughout the day and evening , where you can just hop on and off and experience this exquisite island paradise.
