Umbrella Beach Resort is located on Florida's western coast, on Anna Maria Island, where white-sand beaches and azure waters of the Gulf of Mexico provide abundant water sports. The area is well known as a cultural center with fine art museums, shopping, and fine dining, along with tennis, several area golf courses, and just about anything else your heart desires. Guests will enjoy the ambience of the resort's European courtyard with a heated pool and jacuzzi for relaxing after a full day of activities. Nearby is fishing, sailing rentals, scuba diving, waterskiing, golf, and live entertainment. Anna Maria Island is a beautiful jewel and quaint place that brings one back in time to an era when each shop and restaurant was unique instead of a chain, when you knew all your neighbors and there was a relaxed pace to good living. The beaches are stunning with the white sands and crystal waters. The birds are everywhere, from a flock of wild parrots that live on the island, to endless seabirds of every description. Along with flowers, sea breezes and balmy warm nights, there are dolphins, manatees and fish in abundance.
Another beautiful resort in the local area is the Resort Sixty-Six. White beaches lined with pine trees stretch for miles along the coast of Florida's Anna Maria Island, the site of Resort Sixty-Six.
