Anna Maria Island
Seafood, Sun, and Surf
Spend your afternoon on Anna Maria Island and it's 7 miles of gorgeous white sand beaches, the perfect way to relax and soak up some sun during your Sarasota vacation!
Anna Maria Island sits nestled between the Gulf of Mexico and Peninsular Florida, the entire island providing some of the best fresh seafood dining experiences, local shopping, and of course, beachside fun.
If you are in the mood for some outdoor recreation you can rent a bicycle, swim, fish, boat, dive, snorkel, parasail, dolphin watch, or canoe in nearby Myakka State Park. The sparkling bay, lush gardens, and Mediterranean style architecture all throughout will provide a great beach day ambiance, and you can also choose to visit nearby Orlando or Tampa for an extended day trip.
