Experience The Gulf, Fresh Seafood, And Stunning Scenery On This Scenic Florida Island Drive
Anna Maria Island is a beautiful barrier island in the Gulf that stretches just over seven miles. It connects to Holmes Beach to the south, all the way down to Bradenton Beach, and then finally Coquina Beach before Longboat Pass bridge. All in all, it’ll take you around 22 minutes to drive from one end of Anna Maria Island to the other, and yet, when you add all of the stops along the way it makes for the perfect day trip adventure. Not only will you have Gulf views, delicious restaurants, and tons of natural beauty along the way, but you also won’t even need to waste a full tank of gas doing it all!

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
