Day 2: Island Adventures

If there’s one thing we’re never short of when it comes to Anna Maria Island vacations, it’s adventure! Fuel your day with Sunrise at Compass, our complimentary breakfast buffet, before heading out to explore. Pack your beach bag and take advantage of the white sandy shores that make this island so popular. Avoid the headache of parking and hop aboard the free Anna Maria Island Trolley to Anna Maria Bayfront—perfect for sunning, swimming or sandcastle construction and surrounded by the best restaurants on Anna Maria Island. 

After lunch, cool off at one of the many Manatee County museums, theaters and shops. Be sure to swing by the Manatee Performing Arts Center, because you never know if Broadway is in town! Sailing with the whole crew? We make it easy to find fun at Compass Hotel with this list of Anna Maria Island family activities.

Day 3: On-the-Water & In Nature

What better way to start your third day in paradise than surrounded by the flora and fauna of Florida? Lucky for us, we’re close to all the action and natural beauty in the area. Head across the street to Neal Preserve, flaunting more than 120 acres of coastal habitat, shelling, hiking and so much more. If flowers are more your style, just a ten-minute ride from the hotel is Palma Sol Botanical Gardens. Free to all and full of butterflies and beauty abound.

After your peaceful trek through the trees, you’ll likely be ready for some action! No vacation to Anna Maria Island is complete without a thrilling water adventure. From kayaking and paddleboarding to self-guided or professionally led tours and excursions, there’s no shortage of ways to get on the water. Afterwards, enjoy seafood, steaks and cool concoctions at Floridays Woodfire Grill & Bar, our casual waterfront eatery. Wrap up your final day on our island oasis with a sunset cruise with Anna Maria Boat Company.

Day 4: Your Final Day on the Island

On your final morning at Compass Hotel, squeeze in a sunrise stroll on the sound and bid farewell to our quaint Florida town before a departing breakfast at Sunrise. Leaving Compass Hotel may mark the end of this journey, but the next time you chart a course to Bradenton, Anna Maria Island, Sarasota, Tampa or St. Pete Beach, the memories of your island adventures will help you follow your compass right back to us.
