Anna Maria Island Sunrise
There are a million reasons to love Anna Maria Island. The Anna Maria Island sunrise seen above, the laid back island atmosphere, the old Florida feel, the sugar soft white sand beaches, the cool gulf waters, an average temperature of 74.8 degrees Fahrenheit, and an average of 361 days of sunshine a year are just a few.
This Anna Maria Island sunrise as seen over the Anna Maria City Pier is something we islanders look forward to every day. What better way to start the day than with a short stroll along the beach with the gulf breeze flowing through your hair and the sugar soft sand between your toes? After that just grab a coffee or your favorite breakfast treat and you’ll be ready for anything the day can throw at you.
So come join us and get on “island time” where the day is determined by sunrise and sunset rather than the clock. Until then we’ll be lounging on the beach staring at blue skies while listening to the waves calmly lap along the shoreline. We’re waiting for you to join us with drink in hand here on beautiful Anna Maria Island!
Want to see some more shots of our beautiful island? We have a whole section dedicated to Anna Maria Island sunsets.
It is about time you started your Bucket List and I have some great ideas for you…

Have you ever watched someone walk through the sunbeam just before sunset as the light dances across the gulf on Anna Maria Island? Many of my subjects are caught passing through the sun’s rays and become almost motionless for just a brief moment. Right now we are seeing weather in the upper 70′s to low 80′s and our sunsets have been nothing less than spectacular this week. When you have gazed at as many sunsets as I have you are taught many life lessons as you become one with nature. Have you ever noticed that you cannot rush a sunset? We come to the sunset and must let it’s timing be ours. It is so aligned with the heavens that it is possible to know the exact cycle of the sunset and the moon. [Read more...]
