Anna Maria Island is a seven-mile long island home to three wonderful cities; the City of Bradenton Beach, the City of Holmes Beach and the City of Anna Maria. It rests 20 minutes from Bradenton between the dazzling turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the Florida peninsula. This island community is home to award-winning golf courses and tennis courts as well as a number of art galleries, museums and aquariums. Pine Avenue, which stretches all the way to the historic Anna Maria City Pier, is lined with boutiques and specialty stores. When looking for a home in a great location, with beautiful beaches and plenty to do, look no further than Anna Maria Island.
There are strict regulations in place to limit the type of buildings and businesses allowed on the island, which lends to maintaining the natural beauty of the community.
The brilliant blue waters that surround Anna Maria Island are a paradise for small boat fishers. An abundance of fish, from snook to red fish can be caught here. There are a number of charters for very reasonable prices, where the experienced boat captains will take you on a memorable trip. There are also three separate fishing piers and seven miles of beach to fish on for those who prefer to enjoy the sport from dry land.
