Anna Maria Island is a paradise for families with kids looking for the perfect family vacation destination. There is so much to do with plenty of attractions and kid-friendly activities on Anna Maria Island. From building sand castles to spotting marine wildlife, you can guarantee a vacation you’ll never forget.
Are you up for an underwater adventure? Grab your snorkeling gear, head to one of the island’s beaches, and witness the beautiful marine wildlife. Some marine species you can spot are jellyfish, stingrays, sea turtles, and even dolphins and manatees! Our recommended snorkeling spots are Holmes Beach, Manatee Beach Park, and Egmont Key.
Another fun activity for kids to do on AMI is paddleboarding! One of the best destinations to go paddleboarding with the family is Bimini Bay at Holmes Beach. Whether you’re a beginner or experienced, they will have a blast paddleboarding in the island’s clear waters.
Need a paddleboard? Fun and More Rentals offers paddleboards for all sizes and ages. We even have free delivery and pick-up for your convenience. Paddle away and go where the wind takes you! You might even spot some dolphins and manatees along the way.
Are you looking for a great indoor activity for kids? Visit the Shiny Fish Emporium and let your kids enjoy a sand dollar painting session. Have their work of art proudly displayed and kept as a souvenir from your stay in AMI.
You can also shop for beach glam items or admire toys and artwork from local and global artists. After a day of painting, treat yourself to their Mochi ice cream bubble, available in various flavors.
Fishing on Anna Maria Island is a great family activity for kids. AMI has an abundance of fish, with great fishing spots found all around the island. The Anna Maria City Pier and Rod and Reel Pier are some of the best places to fish. These spots also give you a great view of the sunset and quick restaurant access.
Rent your kayak and explore Anna Maria Island’s reefs, like the Coquina Near Shore Reef, to get in on that fishing action.
Nothing beats the peace of strolling along the sandy beaches and collecting seashells to your heart’s content. This relaxing activity, paired with the stimulating sound of crashing waves by the sea, is more enjoyable than you can imagine.
Have fun collecting and hunting for lovely seashells scattered around the island with your kids. Most seashells are worth keeping, especially if you’re lucky enough to find a sand dollar!
