Anna Maria Island is made up of three cities; Bradenton Beach, Holmes Beach, and Anna Maria City.
The combined population is approximately 8446 residents. Anna Maria Island’s uniqueness revolves around its gorgeous white powdery beaches and zoning guidelines for both commercial and residential properties.
No drive thru’s are allowed on the island. The maximum height for all buildings on the island is 37 feet. While there are two buildings on the island prior to the 37-foot moratorium the zoning has ensured that no enormous buildings enter the island’s skyline.
The miscellaneous zoning laws as well as the current cities boards will ensure that Anna Maria Island continues to be considered “old Florida,” a quiet and quaint place that families come to enjoy the beach and a simpler life we all aspire to attain full-time in our lives.
