One of the first things you’ll notice when you wake up on the beach here is just how pristine the water is. While the Gulf of Mexico often sparkles emerald-green at a distance, up close near the shores of Anna Maria Island, the waters are frequently gin-clear, allowing you to see at least two or three feet deep to the sandy beach bottom.
As we head into December and the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, we just wanted to take a moment to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and happy holidays from sunny Anna Maria Island.
When you think of the holidays, you probably envision the leaves changing, icy weather and snowfall, scarves and mittens.

When you think of Florida, you probably envision beautiful sunny days. It is called the Sunshine State, after all.
Are you planning a winter vacation for your family? Are you searching for a place that offers numerous activities? Do you want to go somewhere that gives the right amount of cold without worrying about any snowfall?
Then the state of Florida is your best bet. Florida recorded over 126 million visitors in 2018. Tough most of them came to have fun in the sun, there is a gem that you need to experience during winter.
When you stay at Cedar Cove Resort, we understand if you don’t want to leave the property the whole time you’re here.
