Sun and Sand spells lots of options for recreational activities. The beach is our biggest draw for visitors from both the North and South. Having fun in the surf and planning your next sand castle memories makes for the perfect Anna Maria Island vacation. We have low impact as well as high impact activities. Several choices of local parks just a few minutes away can provide kayaking, walking, bicycling, bird watching and the list of options can go on and on. Anna Maria Island and the area provides plenty of planned recreational activities like Segway tours, renting a boat, jet ski, parasailing, grabbing some surfing lessons, snorkeling and lots more. Last but not least, how could we forget boat tours, eco tours, or fishing charters where you can catch some "keepers" and have a fresh fish dinner or throw them back for the next angler.
