Beyond the Beach

There is more to Anna Maria Island than the beach!

On the Island

On the Island

On the North end of the island there is Pine Ave to stroll down. Along the avenue is an Art Gallery, Historical Museum and many great restaurants and shops. We highly recommend stopping in Hometown Desserts for the best cakes on the island. Also around the area is the local Island Players. Check out their website for the most current events.  

On the south part of the island, Historical Bridge Street is the place to be. There is the Fish Hole Miniature Golf, bars, restaurants, and shops to check out. Walk out on the historical Bridge Street Pier to catch some fish or just admire the view of the inner coastal. 

During select times of the year there is a Beach Market at Coquina Beach towards the south end of the island.
