Holmes Beach/Manatee Public Beach on Anna Maria Island
4000 Gulf Drive, Holmes Beach, FL
My family and I went to fly our new DJI Phantom 2 Quadcopter for the first time and chose Holmes Beach for our maiden beach flight. I really enjoy seeing beaches from a bird’s eye view! We didn’t see any sea-life in this trip, but a few days later we did see a group of stingrays at a different beach. SO COOL!
I didn’t see any sea turtle nests on this beach, but next year I’d like to go on beach patrol with Anna Maria Island Turtle Watch & Shorebird Monitoring. The spots were filled up before I could sign up.
This beach offers lots of free parking, clean bathrooms, shaded picnic areas, beautiful sand and water. There isn’t anything bad I can say about our trip to Holmes Beach.
