This August, 2008 will be our 4th visit in 3 years to White Sands on Anna Maria Island. We really love the laid back atmosphere of AMI & the White Sands. Location of the motel can't be beat, out your door & right on the beach or into the pool. We have always found the apartment to be clean & if anything is needed the management is quick to respond. The 2 brothers that run White Sands are very friendly & they want to make sure you have a relaxed & enjoyable vacation.
The Island is a neat place, not so overgrown as most beach areas. Good restaurants (we prefer ones that are not fancy), beautiful beach, clean place to stay--our favorite kind of vacation!
We live on the ocean side of Florida but always want to go back to Anna Maria for relaxing time.
