Anna Maria Island supports an active lifestyle with inviting blue skies almost all year around. The beaches are great for relaxing but also good for exercising. Besides swimming in the Gulf of Mexico stroll at an easy pace and pick up shells on your way or power walk along the shores. You can watch people playing frisbee, beach ball, spike ball or a round of beach volleyball at the Manatee Public Beach. There is beach Yoga offered or bike along the multi use trail by Coquina Beach.
Many homes and condo complexes offer community pools but how about tennis, anyone?
There are free public courts in Holmes Beach by 62nd St or try the hard courts at the Center on Magnolia Ave for a daily or longer membership cover.
Even better is staying at one of Duncan Vacation Rentals condos that offer tennis courts or pickle ball as a great additional amenity. There are three complexes in total.

Any Anna Maria Island traveler knows about our world class beaches but how about bringing a boat next time to one of our Duncan Vacation Rentals? There are several canal areas on the island to pick from. If tucked away on the North end, the Key Royale neighborhood or right on the bay along the center and South of the island the water views will make you want to stay longer.
Anna Maria City
On the very North end are side streets off South Bay Boulevard that offer deep water access without bridges to Tampa Bay. Check out Seagull Way if this is what you are looking for. Wake up in this gorgeous 3 bedroom home and have your coffee in bed while overlooking the outstanding view of the bay. The well kept grounds offer your own private retreat.
Also in the city of Anna Maria are other sides streets off Gulf Drive that offer canal access. These canals require passing low bridges to reach Bimini Bay and Tampa Bay. Haupia House and Emerald Surf are located on Hardin Avenue and offer beautiful and serene canal views. You might see a manatee swim by or jumping fish during mullet season.
Holmes Beach & Key Royale
The bay side of Holmes Beach and Key Royale are a boater’s paradise. Many homes are on a canal or face Tampa Bay directly. The rental miminum for most of these homes are 28 nights due to city rules. If you like to relax for a month and enjoy all the boating and finishing right from your back yard consider Port Royale or Redfish Cottage as your home away from home.
Some Condos and homes along the center and South of the island are located directly on the Intercoastal Waterway. Watch boats and kayak paddlers come by and enjoy observing our plentiful wildlife. Birds like herons, manatee or dolphins are just some of the animals you encounter in these waters. Bay Winds is a condo complex that offers a beautiful view and fishing from the private dock.
