Anna Maria Island has commonly been referred to as 'Paradise without an Attitude.' Boasting arguably the whitest and most pristine seven miles of beach in the US, the island is on the west coast of Florida just south of Tampa and is a coveted destination for Floridians and global travelers alike. The island has a typical central west coast Florida climate with hot summers and mild winters, with absolutely glorious weather in early spring and late fall. Anna Maria Island is definitely the place to relax, kick back and enjoy doing not much of anything. However, for those with the itch to be active, the island offers plenty of activities and ways to get your daily dose of exercise. Our year round temperate climate makes the island ideal for all activities and attractions. Warm gulf temperatures are perfect for boating, parasailing, jet skiing, fishing and kayaking. You can’t beat our beaches for sunbathing and shelling. With the beach and the gulf as your backdrop, you have to get out and about on Anna Maria Island. Able to rival many popular international beach destinations the island’s natural beauty and commitment to restricted development (no building is over three stories) have proven tasty and satisfying to those who cross Florida’s inter-coastal waterway to visit the island. Unlike many Florida beach communities Anna Maria Island appears to be unaffected by the unrelenting commercialism typically associated with beach communities. This is predominantly due to an island wide commitment to restricted and limited development which has a major impact on its visual beauty and natural scale, leaving travelers with a refreshingly relaxed visit. Once a sleepy beach community with little national or international recognition, Anna Maria Island has now become commonplace for the discerning traveler who is looking to unplug from a world often running at high speed. You will not find fast food or familiar chain establishments on the island, instead locally owned and operated conveniences ranging from shabby to chic all retaining a unique island flair that is sure to intrigue and satisfy. There are however the conveniences of larger shops and stores to provide anything from groceries to prescriptions to gifts as well as host a variety of business that offer the services to accommodate any and all guest's needs. Shopping on Anna Maria Island is convenient, diverse, and affordable, with most stores located in a pleasant setting in one of the three towns. On the North end the city of Anna Maria has a nice outdoor market right on the Tampa Bay while Bradenton Beach offers historic Bridge Street with all sorts of cafes and boutiques. Holmes Beach hosts a centrally located outdoor mall with all kinds of keepsake shops and necessity items. If you need a break from the sun and beach all these spots are well worth a afternoon stroll. If you are interested in unwinding on a romantic getaway or family beach vacation, without spending a fortune on international travel, you have found the spot. Get off the grid and come and enjoy.
