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!
