postheadericon Top 5 Free Things to Do on Anna Maria Island

 

We just got back from¬†one¬†of our favorite spots in Florida where the sand is like sugar and the emerald water¬†is calm and warm!¬† This little slice of paradise is Anna Maria Island which is located¬†on the¬†west coast about¬†90 minutes southwest of¬†Tampa International Airport and about 40 minutes north of Sarasota.¬† It’s a laid back, charming little beach town free of big resorts and high rise hotel chains.¬† It is only 7 1/2 miles long and less than a mile wide and it is surrounded by the beautiful Gulf of Mexico, Tampa Bay, and the Intracoastal Waterway!

Our third port of the cruise was to Carnival’s private island; Mahogany Bay.¬† Mahogany Bay is on the island of Roatan, one of the Honduras Bay Islands in the Caribbean Sea.¬† The port has duty free shopping, bars, restaurants, excursion options, and ofcourse a private beach.

For this port we booked a private tour of the entire island.¬† We wanted to get the true feeling of this country rather than just staying at Carnival’s little Disneyland!¬† In fact, independent tour operators are not even allowed into the terminal area to pick up passengers.¬† You need to walk up a big hill and exit the security gate if you’ve booked privately….and so we did!¬† After leaving the cruise port terminal the island definitely boasts a more rustic feel, especially in comparison to the other ports on this journey.¬† There is a lot of elevation and the island has very lush jungles!¬† There is one main road that takes you from end to end with all of the side roads off of that.
