About Anna Maria Island

This charming, laid-back island is situated only 60 miles south of Tampa, Florida, and encompasses picture-perfect beaches like Manatee Beach Park. Strict regulations govern the type of buildings and businesses allowed on Anna Maria Island, which helps keep it a small and quiet island town!

The namesake town occupies the northern end of the island, with plenty of local dining, cute cottages, and scenic piers to delight any visitor. Pine Avenue is lined with shops, galleries and eateries. You may not be far from the mainland here, but you’re worlds away from the stresses of everyday life.

Some of the things you can explore are:

  • Leffis Key - test your bird watching skills while taking in the beauty of the wetlands.
  • Anna Maria Bayfront Park - perfect for families wanting a quieter playground.
  • Rod and Reel Pier - enjoy a lunch here.
