With less than forty rooms at this tranquil wharf-style property, Waterline Marina Resort & Beach Club exudes an intimate atmosphere that perfectly encapsulates Anna Maria’s island character. The island’s Gulf of Mexico position in Tampa Bay guarantees tropical breezes, powder-soft white beaches and warm, swimmable seas. It’s the quintessential location for Florida holidays on the west coast, away from the theme parks and a million miles from rush hour. Live for the moment and forge memories to treasure with your family or other half at this charming waterside resort.
Things to do at Waterline Marina Resort & Beach Club, Autograph Collection
Take your pick; you’re on an island though so sand, sea and surf will more than likely feature in your holiday highlights here. Settle into lazy days with a good book on the beach, including Beach Club rentals. Cast out on a fishing trip taking in the local coastal bays and inland Gulf waters. Ask your resort hosts about parasailing, sunset cruises and other exciting water sports. Bliss out at the award-winning spa – located next door – or maintain your workout regime at Waterline’s onsite fitness centre.
Take the ten-minute stroll to Island Gallery West or Manatee Public Beach, or experience a wealth of other Anna Maria Island attractions, from the Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium and Marie Selby Botanical Gardens to picturesque piers and turtle watching. The nearby shops, sporting venues and restaurants reward the inquisitive traveller, too. If you’ve selected Waterline Hotel as a stop-off on your fly-drive holiday to Florida, you’ll be pleased to hear that complimentary parking is offered here. Check-in is 3pm; check-out 11am. (Please note: minimum check-in age is 21 years.)
