Surf Shack, 2109 Avenue C

We have rented The Surf Shack for the 4th of July week. This will be our first time down, for any extened time to AMI. What can we expect the beach to be like near the house? What is the general vibe of this part of the island? Any cool beach bars to walk too to see the sunset? thanks for your replies!

Well there are not an abundance of bars on Anna Maria Island. If you just want to take in the Sunset then you are in the right place. Just to the South by about 10 blocks is Gulf Drive Cafe and a block more to the South is Beach House. Both have outdoor seating to view Sunsets. If you are looking for a more eventful night, one of the few bars on the island that would provide that entertainment is about 10 blocks to the North, it is the Anchor Inn. All the beaches on AMI are very similar. Some wider and some narrower but all have sugar white sand.

The new Tiki bar at Gulf Drive Cafe, Beach House, Bar under Bridge Street Bistro would all be good for sunsets. There are other bars on Bridge Street as well, and most will have live music. While most of the bars do sell some food as well, you do not have to eat there.

Thanks for the suggestions. I guess i should have said family friendly, with a sunset view. The Gulf Drive Cafe looks likes a nice spot for sure. The menu at BSB looks good as well. Im so excited to get away and explore the island. Thanks for the tips!
