About the neighbourhood
Great central location on AMI for fishing, shopping, beaches, City Pier and Rod & Reel Pier. Hire a bike or golf cart to explore the island, spot the dolphins and manatees that inhabit the gulf and inter-coastal waterways. The island hosts a number of art galleries and there are numerous arts and crafts events and local festivals throughout the year. Watersports opportunities on AMI include Kiteboarding, paddle boards, kayaking, jet ski hire, boat charters and deep sea fishing trips. Holmes Beach boasts a full range of restaurants, from one that has been honored with inclusion in ZAGAT’s “Top Restaurants in America“ to locally owned and run authentic American diner style outlets - and everything inbetween. Locally caught fish and seafood are amongst the specialities on offer - ...
Getting around
A free Island Trolley bus service links Holmes Beach to each end of the island, with a northbound stop within 100 yards of our home and the southbound stop just 3 minutes away. Yes! It really is free!
