  • Wonderful vacation place. Very quiet and not crowded. Very few hotels on the island. Rent a house and have a relaxing weekend.

  • What a beautiful place, beach. Perfect for family. Bring your kids, let them swim in the warm, clear water. Manatee public beach can get crowded but you can park on side of the 45th st. And walk few yards until beach access with much less people. You can also drive few more miles north and get to the tip of the island. Very special place

  • Most beautiful beach I have ever visited. The water is so clear and turquoise. I have been all over Florida to many, many beaches and this beach is my favorite of all the beaches I have ever been. Actually it is amazing.

  • Wife and I enjoy visiting Anna Maria Island on a Sunday to unwind. It's laid-back, a bit cooler and the view can be stunning. The city pier is popular with anglers and at its furthest point the water is quite deep. It has a small restaurant plus a casual bar if you just want to grab a beer and enjoy the view. There's a pretty little beach along Bayfront Park with abundant shade, popular for swimming & picnics, plus there's often a Latin vibe in the air. Bienvenidos! And head down to the end of S. Bay to see yachts the size of small houses!
