Anna Maria Island’s Most Popular Experiences

Here are three of the most popular things to do on Anna Maria Island.

Fishing and Diving
You’ll quickly discover that Anna Maria Island and the surrounding offshore water is full of numerous shipwrecks of all kinds. This makes it a perfect place for fishing and diving from your Anna Maria Island boat rental. The underwater scenery is something you’ll remember long after you leave the area.

Manatee Beach Park
Manatee Beach Park is an excellent place to spot sea turtles crawling around in the sand. The nesting season is from May 1 to October 31. Enjoy seeing these cute animals, but remember that it is against the law to touch or disturb any nesting sea turtles, hatchlings, or their nests.

Bridge Street Market
The Bridge Street Market Farmers’ Market is one of the most popular recurring events on Anna Maria Island. The City Pier by Bridge Street becomes full of local food vendors, unique Florida arts and crafts, talented artisans, and other entertainment when you visit the area from November to April.

Anna Maria Island’s Best Bodies of Water

Coquina Beach

You can easily drop anchor from your Anna Maria Island boat rental and step ashore for a while. Use Manatee County Area Transit’s popular Island Trolley to get to Coquina Beach, where you’ll find picnic tables, playgrounds, public restrooms, and outdoor showers.

Egmont Key Wildlife Refuge

Sail your Anna Maria Island boat rental to the mouth of Tampa Bay, where you will find Egmont Key Wildlife Refuge. This place is a safe shelter for endangered birds like gulls, hawks, and ospreys. If you see the impressive birds circling above the water, that usually means there will be fish in the area.

Pine Key

Although it is not very far from Anna Maria Island, very few boaters visit this island. Sail your Anna Maria Island boat rental to Pine Key, where you can easily anchor your boat offshore and do some deep-sea fishing from the boat. You can also swim around the island and enjoy the warm, clear waters.
