Excellent Peaceful Holiday

  • 4 of 5

Amazingly peaceful setting in a village like atmosphere. Really is one minute's stroll to a perfectly white sandy beach looking out to the west. Medium sized heated pool. Comfortable good sized accommodation. Easy booking and all of rental went ahead very smoothly. If you can afford it, book all the properties and take a large family group. So much to do on dry and wet days within an hour's drive - even more if you are willing to drive up to Crystal River. Car is essential if you want to explore, but if you only want to be on the beach then the local free bus would get you everywhere on the island including the supermarket!

1 minutes walk to the fantastic white sandy Beach that stretches from one end of the Island to the other. It is never crowded and you can sit and watch Dolphins playing in the shallows, Pelicans dive and the Ibis run as well as Herons, Terns, Plover, Snipes and numerous other forms of wildlife. A true nature lovers paradise. The Anna Maria end of the Island is a nature reserve with bicycle paths. You can wander the quiet lanes and see flocks of Parrots & sometimes have to overtake a tortoise.

Further Details:

Visit the little antique, clothing, gift, craft and book shops. Visit the spa or gym, hire a boat, or fish from one of the many piers. Bike along the bike tracks or walk along the 7 miles of White Sandy beach and enjoy the numerous unusual sea birds, watch Pelicans dive, Dolphins play in the shallows, and the Ibis run. Take a visit to Longboat key across one of the 3 bridges. Shop in Amardas circle or visit the Arts in Sarasota. Do a day trip to one of the Adventure Parks. Surf or skim board, go parasailing, windsurfing, kayacking or jetskiing. Or just snorkle for sand dollars. A place where you can do as much or as little as you want. A perfect place for family holidays.

With beach bars, 4 restaurants on different piers, one that will cook the fish that your children or you have just caught. Romantic candlelit restaurants with excellent service, great food and music.

French, Italian, Thai, Chinese, Americian, as well as takeaways and delivery services.

Wonderful clothes, surf, antique, craft, gift shops and markets. A large Publix Supermarket that sells everything. A few grocery stores that are open very long hours and one on Pine Avenue that will even deliver to your door.

The Island has a gym & fitness center, spa, library with books, DVDs, Videos and Computers. Internet Cafe, tennis, skateboard park. Rental shops for anything from Bikes, electric scooters, kayaks, to childrens toys, cots, cribs, highchairs and beach strollers.

There is also a free Trolly bus that travels round and round the Island with a stop at each stop. Max wait, I believe, is 20 minutes.
