Discover Anna Maria Island

Popular with Europeans and well known by the locals, it's surprising that many home buyers who ask me about beach homes in the Sarasota area are not very familiar with Anna Maria Island.

Anna Maria Island (locally referred to as AMI) is a barrier island north of Longboat Key in Manatee County.  There are three towns on the island:  the town of Anna Maria, Holmes Beach, and Bradenton Beach.

Anna Maria Island beaches rival those of Siesta Key in color and texture.  Unlike Siesta Key, however, Anna Maria is not lined with mid and high rise condo buildings.  Anna Maria and Holmes Beach have quaint shopping districts that give these communities a laid back vibe.  You can even ride the free trolley to get around without a car.  Even better, the island is fairly narrow. The beaches are just a short walk from the bay side of the island.
