Holmes Beach

On Beautiful Anna Maria Island

Located in a residential area dotted with rentals, Holmes Beach does not provide concession or bathing facilities but, it is a nice quiet stretch of sand. Parking is limited to side streets that end at beach access points. Picnic tables shaded by Australian pines are scattered near some of the entries. So, pack some snacks... and spend the day... or sink into a beach chair for an unforgettable sunset!

Holmes Beach is the busiest section of Anna Maria as access from the mainland (the city of Bradenton) is at this point.

Park on side streets, Walk over the Dunes and Enjoy Old Florida!

Looking for a place to stay?

The vacation rentals vary from apartment efficiencies and motel rooms to cottages and rental condominiums. The atmosphere is relaxing and casual with plenty of good restaurants, performing arts and quaint little shops. What makes Anna Maria so attractive to visitors is its private island feel... so book early and go back in time on this little island paradise. If staying on the Island, leave the car and ride the "FREE trolleys" that travel daily from Coquina Beach to Anna Maria Pier; with service starting at 6:00a.m. till 10:30p.m.; at 30 minute intervals.
