About Our Island

Anna Maria Island supports a very special ecology and Old Florida philosophy. The laid-back lifestyle allows time to step back from the hectic energies and just walk on the beach, or enjoy a picnic supper at sunset.

There is a canal network throughout the island that allows an interesting selection of water-front lifestyles, plus an island trolley system for transportation throughout the three individually unique island cities of Holmes Beach, Bradenton Beach and City of Anna Maria.

Island History

Anna Maria Island History: Historical Society

Anna Maria’s history begins in 1513 with a man and a tale familiar to us all – Ponce de Leon’s quest for the Fountain of Youth.

Ponce de Leon's It was during that quest that he discovered Florida itself on Easter Sunday, naming it “Pascua de Florida” which means “Feast of Flowers“, the Spanish name for this holy day.

His quest continued as he journeyed up the Gulf Coast of Florida nearly five hundred years ago and named our small island Ana-Maria-Cay to honor the Virgin Mary and her mother Anne. more info
