Learn more about Anna Maria Island

Anna Maria Island is the northernmost of a string of barrier islands that extends in a southerly direction. Located on the West Coast of Florida, about 35 Miles south of Tampa, Anna Maria Island is the barrier between the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay. Almost 8 miles of white-sandy beaches are stretching along the Gulf coastline southwards to Longboat Key Pass.

Yes, Anna Maria has resisted changing over the years. On this laid-back island, you will still experience the “old Florida” feeling. But on Anna Maria, you need to learn to spend your days with the simple things in life again: fishing, shelling, or swimming, relaxing. Reading a good book in the shade of a palm tree while the fronds are swaying in the balmy air will also be one of your tasks. There is an extensive canal network throughout the island which is hardly visible – but many homes have their deep water dock, and many homes offer spectacular bay views as well.  Anna Maria Island, the first in a string of beautiful island communities, is easily accessible by automobile via two bridges (Manatee and Cortez Bridge) from the mainland. Two main airports, Sarasota International and Tampa International, are also only a ” stone’s throw” away. So, you can live like Robinson Crusoe if you wish, but within minutes you can dive into
