Anna Maria Island is 7 miles long and in some places 1/2mi wide. There are three cities on the island, each with their own governments and criteria:

• Anna Maria (which is basically residential with a business district on Pine Avenue)
• Holmes Beach (which is residential and business oriented)
• Bradenton Beach (which is basically tourist oriented)

The county beach is in Holmes Beach, but each city supports their own long stretches of pristine white sand beaches.
