- THE ISLAND
ANNA MARIA ISLAND -
YOUR ISLAND IN THE SUN
Miles of sugar-white beaches kissing emerald Gulf waters, embrace the quaint town of Anna Maria Island, one of Florida’s best kept secrets. The private island feel makes you want to own a piece of this island in the sun, and the proximity to everything you need is very convenient.
Anna Maria is Rich in History
The island is rich in history, from its first discovery by local Indian tribes, and later by Spanish explorers. Its spectacular sunsets and tropical breezes have drawn those seeking romance and Hollywood crews, and its quaint uniqueness has compelled homebuyers. From million-dollar villas to simple rustic cottages, Anna Maria offers unique beach living for those seeking a perfect island getaway.
The free island trolley gives visitors and homeowners the opportunity to discover a selection of shops, restaurants, performing arts, other beaches and attractions. Island restaurants offer seafood, burgers, sushi, coffee and pastries, pizza, bar-b-que, and island ice cream. When you need to take a break from swimming in the ocean, you may charter a sailboat, take a waterfront tour, rent a kayak, head for the nature trail, or make time for a game of tennis at the community center. The island shops are delightful, offering beach gear, clothing, home furnishings, antiques, wine, and groceries.
Longboat Key is just a hop, skip and jump away, and Sarasota invites islanders for a daytime or evening stroll among its beautiful shops in St. Armands Circle. Here you can also enjoy educational museums, operas, ballets, plays, golf and boat races.
Despite being so close, back on Anna Maria Island, one feels so far away in the unique island atmosphere where sun, sea, and quaintness combine with relaxation, creating the perfect formula for real living.
