  • Only problem here is restricted parking. Aim to arrive early. Beach is long and has lovely white sand. No hot feet here!

  • The island and the Gulf have clean beautiful water. The coloring of the water was like from the exotic places. Groceries and dining out was a bit more expensive than the main land. The beaches are white sand and maintained well. Very clean. The beaches rank in the top 10 of beautiful beaches. I enjoyed my stay here. Parasailing is a must for all ages.
  • This beach is in my top 5. I loved the volleyball, the restaurant/bar in the sand with live music, and the cloud formations rising high over the setting sun which was gorgeous, romantic and 5 stars all by itself. Hands down though, the best thing was the water. Clear, warm, shallow for a long way out with plenty of waves breaking for my fearless grandson to have a ball without a huge undertow. I didn't want to leave but the drive off Anna Marie island requires patience and a sense of adventure. Plenty of parking makes it easy to dawdle in the parking lot for a pre-drive snack and a bit of people watching. A perfect spot to stroll down the beach and pop the question as the sun set slowly.
