Anna Maria, nicknamed as the ‘Cornwall of Florida’ is a small barrier island just 7 miles long and at times only 300’ wide. Located just off Sarasota, linked at the southern end to Long Boat Key, it is very much a laid back island community with a flavour of the Old Floridian lifestyle where bare feet prevail and the British Accent is still as novelty.
High rise buildings are banned, as are fast food restaurants, and the pace of life is slow. The main beach is over 7 miles long with easy shady parking under the pine trees. The island is within a 15 minute drive of St Armands Circle or 20 minutes from the large Desoto Shopping Mall in Bradenton. Golf Courses abound with a choice of over 30 in the area to suit all levels of player. The free island shuttle offers a great way to get around all the attractions of this picturesque island. *Pictures are an idea of furnishings and layout*
