About Anna Maria
Laid-back and natural, Anna Maria Island awaits you! – A seven-mile strip of beautiful white-sand beaches line this barrier island lies between the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the western Florida Peninsula. Also found here, are the cities of Bradenton Beach, Anna Maria and Holmes Beach. Queens Gate Resort awaits you in Bradenton Beach, the southern municipality of the island, and home of the famous little downtown called “Bridge Street“ where there is excellent dining , shopping and a little night life along with miniature golfing for everyone and City pier! We are within walking distance from Bridge Street and many other restaurants and shops. Our own private beach awaits you directly across the street. Trollies on the island run every 20 minutes from one end to the other and believe it or not – they are free all day from morning until night. This makes exploring the island easy and fun. Flip flops are a way of life here and the speed limit never exceeds 35 miles per hour. High rise condos and fast food restaurants are pleasantly absent from our pristine “get away from it all” island. Dolphin shows in the wild happen just about every day here on our shoreline. Sunsets beyond belief and the moon’s reflection on the water are sights that will sure amaze you each and every day! One visit to AMI and you will refer to it as “my island.”
It’s beautiful, peaceful and relaxing here and we hope that you will choose Queens Gate Resort, our friendly, warm and charming atmosphere for your vacation destination. We welcome you to Anna Maria Island where you will arrive as a “stranger” but be sure to leave as our “friend.”!
