Anna Maria Island for Families!
Surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean, visitors to Florida can have a hard time choosing which beach town to visit.
Our family choose to rest on Anna Maria’s Island for it’s old Florida charm and character. There are no high rise building and chain stores are limited.
Finding the right accommodations for our family took hours of searching, but it paid off big time!
There are wonderful restaurants, many activities, rentals like paddle boarding in the bay, and more to enjoy but for our family, we just relaxed!
The main attraction for our family on Anna Marie Island was the beaches! We spent hours each day swimming and playing in the sand. A highlight was finding starfish along the beach!
Bean Point was one of our favorites. Parking can be challenging, but just find a side street and an access point!
The resort also had a private beach which we took advantage of!
There are several nature centers in the area and we enjoyed hiking Leffis Key.
We packed our seashells in plastic deli meat containers and most of them survived the plane ride home.
We loved Anna Maria Island in Florida!
