Did you know Anna Maria Island is actually split into three communities?
At the island's most northern point, you'll find Anna Maria. Bean Point Beach is Anna Maria's most peaceful locale, known for its stunning sunsets and views featuring the Sunshine Skyway Bridge over Tampa Bay, and the state park and national wildlife refuge, Egmont Key. You can also enjoy Bayfront Park, which is just around the corner (and walkable!) from Bean Point Beach on the island's bayside.
Holmes Beach sits in the center of Anna Maria Island and offers three miles of sandy beaches. The most popular option here is Manatee Public Beach, which provides plenty of room for relaxation, playing volleyball, and walking along its shores. Manatee Public Beach also has picnic tables and grills, and restrooms and showers, ideal for a family get-together or a full beach day.
Bradenton Beach is the southern community of Anna Maria Island and is home to the lovely Coquina Beach and Cortez Beach. Perfect for swimming, Coquina Beach sits at the southernmost edge of the island, right before Longboat Pass Bridge. A little further up you'll find Cortez Beach, which offers a quiet, family-oriented environment. You're spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing which beach to watch the sunset from!
