Holmes Beach Florida

FEATURED LISTING: Florida ::: Holmes Beach


God made a curve of white sand on Anna Maria Island, and we are in debt to Jack Holmes for making it possible for us to enjoy dream vacations in this paradise on earth! Holmes Beach is one of the best places in Florida for a restful holiday. Holmes Beach was incorporated in 1950 and developers have built a delightful array of hotels and restaurants since then.

Delightful hotels are one of the best features of Holmes Beach. Most have direct access to the fine white sand, with gorgeous views of the Ocean. The hotels are small enough to make you feel special and the standards of housekeeping and hospitality are exceedingly high. The coastline of the Gulf is famous for stunning sunsets, and the beachfronts have views that leave you wishing that your vacation would never end! Rooms have all the modern conveniences that you could wish, and the breakfasts are legendary for both taste and for variety.

Though Holmes Beach is charming in its solitude and sense of peace, there are endless lists of recreational activity available. You could easily reach the end of your vacation without sufficient time to enjoy all of them! Water sports are top draws, and kayaking is amongst the most loved by visitors. The waters off Holmes Beach are rich with dolphins, and the lovable creatures can provide vacationers with unforgettable experiences.

Holmes Beach is kind and understanding to those who like to laze around on a vacation. The beach stretches invitingly to the very horizon and the sun seems to know precisely how much radiation will suit your complexion! Holmes Beach is a relatively small place, but vacationers can send endless hours strolling on the beach and exploring the quaint town on bicycles.

Sumptuous cuisine is an important ingredient of the best vacations, and Holmes Beach excels in this respect as well. Seafood is an obvious favorite. Holmes Beach has franchise outlets that serve fresh catch with excellent plating in a casual atmosphere. Barbecue, Italian and German fare are other culinary delights that will quickly add to your waistline if you slacken the fitness regime because of being on holiday!

Holmes Beach is near Bradenton. The glamour of large cities is always close at hand in the unlikely event of your getting bored with the peace and quiet of Holmes Beach. Reasonably priced housing is available for vacationers who so fall for the charms of Holmes Beach, that they join the fortunate band of about five thousand people resident here. Holmes Beach boasts of 93% of its population having completed their primary education: a third has graduate degrees and unemployment is around just 3%. The Anna Maria Island Elementary School has served the community since the earliest days of the place as a city, as has the Island Medical Center. A 1970 accident led to the local airport being closed, but Holmes Beach is easily accessible in spite of its endearing isolation.
