Visit the Best Beaches on Anna Maria Island
You’ll find breathtaking beaches all up and down the miles-long coastline of the island, primed for a perfect beach day. As the island isn’t very wide, you’re never far from the shore, and many properties are an easy walk to the sand. Anna Maria Island offers a variety of beaches, so whether you like action-packed spots with eateries and shopping, or prefer something more secluded for an Easter picnic, there’s options for every occasion.
Bean Point is the northernmost point of the island and boasts sweeping views of the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay—ideal for an Easter morning walk! The nearby Bayfront Park sits along the bay, and offers a small beach, playground, and BBQ facilities—pretty much everything you need for an Easter cookout. If you prefer the hustle and bustle of beach cafes and surf shops, try Holmes Beach or Coquina Beach, where you can grab Easter brunch and get in some retail therapy. However you feel like relaxing on your AMI Easter vacation, there’s a beach for you!
Unforgettable Dining and Shopping for a Perfect Easter
Our proximity to the waters of the Gulf of Mexico means that you’ll be in heaven if you’re a lover of fresh seafood. Have Easter dinner at an upscale restaurant with a sunset ocean view or grab fish tacos on your way to a local easter event. If you’re not crazy about seafood, you’ll find countless other options, such as high-quality pizza and burger joints, and restaurants with a wide variety on their menu.
Spring is an optimal time to get in some shopping, whether it’s a new vacation swimsuit or a handmade candle for your room back home. Pine Avenue is the classic spot to shop on Anna Maria Island, as there’s an assortment of boutiques selling all manner of things, including jewelry, home items, beachwear, artwork, and more. There are other popular spots to shop on the island too, such as the Bridge Street District and the beach markets. Spend your Easter weekend shopping on AMI!
