Looking to wow your significant other with the perfect romantic getaway? There’s no better place to whisk them away to than Anna Maria Island, off the coast of Florida. Let us help you plan the perfect romantic trip. 

Step 1: Find a lovely place to stay on the water. 

If you’re going to visit Anna Maria Island, you might as well do it right. That means staying on the water. There’s nothing better than the ability to walk to the beach. Not to mention, what’s more romantic than starting your day strolling down the beach and ending your day enjoying a breathtaking sunset over the water?

Anna Maria Island offers many beautiful properties that are one of a kind. Here are a couple of our favorites: 

Sea La Vie

This private oasis is a fully renovated 3 bedroom and 2 bath home with a heated pool. The main floor boasts an open floor plan with sweeping views of the ocean over a large sun deck. If you want to enjoy views of the ocean the entire time, this is a great place. Guests often spot dolphins swimming and jumping in the ocean. Not to mention, if you don’t feel like going out in the evenings, you can use the kitchen to stay in and enjoy a romantic dinner. This could be just the secluded spot you’re looking for.

Cloud 9

Picture this: you and your partner are enjoying your own private elevated circular hot tub with a waterfall edge that looks out over the water.  At night, you can see the lights on the Skyway Bridge and are close enough to the water to hear the waves splashing. This scenario can come to life by booking Cloud 9. It’s a brand new construction beachfront home with a heated pool, located on the northern end of Anna Maria Island. It is professionally decorated and finished with all king beds and en-Suite bathrooms.Cloud 9 is the perfect place to fall in love all over again. 

Step 2: Plan a fancy dinner to celebrate. 

Now that you’ve picked a place to stay, take a few minutes to make dinner reservations at one of the premier Anna Maria Island restaurants. Your significant other will appreciate how much thought and effort you put into this romantic getaway. Be sure to let the host or hostess know if you’re celebrating something special, like an anniversary or birthday. If you’re new to Anna Maria Island, let us suggest a couple of outstanding restaurants. 

The Waterfront Restaurant

This is one of the island’s most popular restaurants, especially for romantic dinners. The Old Florida feel of the restaurant is the perfect environment for an intimate dinner for two. Not to mention, you can enjoy the gorgeous ocean view while you eat dinner. You can also take advantage of their excellent selection of drinks. 

Sandbar Restaurant

Sandbar Restaurant is another wonderful option for a romantic dinner for two. If you prefer a casual dinner with your toes in the sand, eat on their waterfront deck. You can also opt to eat in the dining room for a more traditional dining experience. Either way, you’ll love the exquisite food and beautiful ocean views. 

The Beach Bistro

The Beach Bistro is a well-known Anniversary favorite in Anna Maria Island. If you love restaurants that are high end and feel somewhat exclusive, this is exactly what you’re looking for. It’s a popular spot for celebrities to eat when they visit the island. The exquisite food and breathtaking ocean views make for a quintessential romantic dinner.

Step 3: Surprise him or her with a “wow factor”. 

What do we mean by wow factor? Take that extra step and plan a fun experience for you and your significant other. The best thing to do depends on what you enjoy, what you find romantic, and whether you are more energized by relaxation or adventure. Here are some ideas to get you started: 

  • Schedule a couples massage. 
  • Rent jet skis for the morning.
