Here's your ultimate guide to Anna Maria Island in Florida, including where to stay, when to visit, and what to do. Thomas De Wever/Getty Images With white-sand beaches, beautiful blue water, swaying sea oats, and incredible sunrises and sunsets, Florida's Anna Maria Island is one of the most scenic destinations in the state. Add to that the salt air and a plethora of waterfront restaurants serving up fresh seafood and you have a feast for all the senses. Located on the western coast of Florida with Tampa to the north, Fort Myers to the south, and the Gulf of Mexico on every other side, Anna Maria Island is a seven-mile stretch of laid-back beauty made up of three towns: Bradenton Beach to the south, Anna Maria to the north, and Holmes Beach in between.
