South of Tampa Bay, this narrow seven mile isle on Florida’s west coast is a welcome retreat from the high speed pace of the rest of the world.
Fast food, wi-fi hotspots and familiar chain establishments are non-existent in this barefoot beachside island community.
A diverse resident population of 8,500 includes retirees, families and in winter months an international contingency. Many are small business owners with young families drawn to an outstanding primary school and protective, kid-friendly activities.
There are no buildings exceeding four stories and Anna Maria’s artsy paddleboard/cruiser bike atmosphere lends to few traffic lights. Canals branch out from interior locations offering deep-water docking… from old Florida to newly constructed “island style” homes. The private Key Royale is the only island course, yet golfers have plenty off island locations.
With world-wide attention, Anna Maria’s natural beauty and commitment to restricted development has peaked plenty of interest.
We invite you to take a look.
