Holmes Beach destination wedding

Holmes Beach – Public Access

This location works for all-size weddings.

Anna Maria Island offers limited parking on most of the Island, except here. This is the best location for larger engagements on ‘The Island.’ This is the perfect destination location for mid-to-large size weddings. This location will accommodate 75+ guests on Anna Maria Island without going South to Coquina Beach or North to our White Ave location.

A snack shop, concessions, and restrooms center the beach with tons of parking on the North and South side. We recommend the North Side on Weekends and South Location during the week.
