Anna Maria Island…

One of Florida’s best kept secrets

Anna Maria Island, at only 7 1/2 miles long and less than a mile wide has always been known for its sugar-white coastline, emerald Gulf waters and quaint business districts. Today, it is now known as a vacation favorite among local, national and international travelers. From honeymooners to Hollywood film crews, youngsters to the young-at-heart, people from around the world have discovered this “get away from it all” island.  It is a place where “old” Florida charm can still be found, flip flops are a way of life and the speed limit never exceeds 35mph. High rise condos and chain restaurants are pleasantly absent from our pristine paradise.  The restaurants are delightfully local.

“In other words, you’ve stepped into the Florida of decades ago, with one major difference: New amenities enhance the old charm for a winning combination.” – Southern Living
