Located in west central Florida between Tampa and Sarasota, Anna Maria Island is a tropical getaway that is just now being discovered! Great fishing, boating, shelling and swimming - we offer it all.

For the boater/fisherman - numerous fishing piers, excursion boats, boat rentals and charter boats are available. Marinas are located around the island or bring your own boat - ramps are conveniently

located and the fishing's great!

For the beach goer - Anna Maria is seven miles long and offers peaceful, white sand beaches running the length of the island. Take a walk, find some shells, get some sun or just relax on our beaches, they're spectacular.

For the shopper - Anna Maria offers many different kinds of quaint beach shops, gift and dress shops. For more 'extensive' shopping, two outlet malls are located by I-75.

For the whole family - Theme parks are located within two hours from Anna Maria. Spend a day at Disney World, Busch Gardens, Cypress Gardens, Mote Marine or Sarasota Jungle Gardens - they're too numerous to list! Museums, botanical gardens, state parks abound and make great day trips. During February and March, see the Pittsburgh Pirates play at their winter training field.

For the golfer - Two golf courses are located within five miles of Anna Maria with many more nearby in the Bradenton area.

We could go on and on - the beauty of Anna Maria Island has to be seen to be appreciated. The recreational activities are too numerous to list and the weather is too fantastic to believe! Come see for yourself!
