Fall is a beautiful time to visit Anna Maria Island. We may not get the colorful leaves of the north, but we do get optimal temperatures and slightly less busy beaches. Fall temperatures are typically between 80 and 90 degrees, and the water is usually warm enough to swim. Cooler weather offers a perfect opportunity for outdoor activities. Enjoy a long bike ride around the island, or take a hike in one of the nearby state parks. As kids go back to school and a new year begins, Anna Maria rentals and beaches become much less crowded, making for a tranquil stay.

Winter draws visitors from all over, with the peak season being from December to February. Anna Maria Island doesn’t have summer weather year-round, but it does have temperatures in the 70s – much warmer than the ice and snow that so many travelers are escaping. Winter is a great time for festivals, holiday celebrations, shopping, dining, and more. Holmes Beach is a hub of activity in the winter, particularly over the winter break and we have plenty of Holmes Beach rentals to stay at. Anna Maria Island fully embraces the winter holidays, with exciting events for families, couples, and groups of friends.
