Anna Maria Island is the perfect place to spend spring break with 7 miles of gorgeous white sand beaches. Many college students are just looking for a place to get away and unwind to prepare themselves for final exams, and Anna Maria Island is just the place to do it!
Here are some perfect ways to spend some carefree days:
- Have a beach day! With 7 miles of white sand beaches there are plenty to choose from. Have a secluded beach day at Bean Point, or head over to Coquina Beach or Bradenton Beach where there are plenty of people and activities, as well as picnic areas and food! You can walk the beach and collect shells too!
- Take a stroll in our nature preserves. Connecting with nature is a wonderful way to relax and clear the mind from the stress of college life. Be sure to bring a camera as there are plenty of local birds and pretty viewing areas along the way. Coquina Baywalk is just south of Bradenton Beach across from the beach.
- Ride the free trolley. The trolley takes you from one end of the island to the other, with plenty of stops along the way. You can even stop on Bridge Street or Pine Avenue and check out the unique shops and restaurants there and pick up a souvenir or two.
- Dine on the beach, watching the sunset, while listening to live music. What is more relaxing than that? If you head on over to Anna Maria Island Beach Café on Holmes Beach, you can do all of that. You can even go there for breakfast with all you can eat pancakes! You might even catch a dolphin or two playing in the water while you eat!
