When thinking of an island vacation, thoughts conjured up include endless sunshine, pristine white sand beaches, azure water and relaxing accommodations. Just south of St. Petersburg you’ll find all of these features and more on Anna Maria Island. The seven mile long island is home to three cities Anna Maria, Holmes Beach and Bradenton Beach. Holmes Beach is the largest city with a population of just over 5,000 people. Each of the cites has much to offer including historic tours, unique shopping opportunities and delicious dining with some of the best seafood dishes in Florida. The community takes great pride in their parks and beaches, it shows in the clean and pristine beaches and facilities. The island mantra is “get away from it all” and they mean it by not allowing high rise condominiums or any fast food restaurant chains.
