There are several public beaches along Anna Maria Island that offer it all. Bradenton Beach and Manatee Beach are both well loved public beaches along the gulf that are great for families or for a quiet afternoon.
The calm waters are perfect for all sorts of water activities like swimming, paddle boarding, kayaking and more.
Enjoy yoga on the beach in the mornings for a relaxing start to your day. Fishing from the shore or from a boat is a common site on our shores.
The area is also home to many day spas and wellness centers. There is nothing more relaxing than having a massage as you hear the sound of the ocean and enjoy the weather.
