What better way to stay healthy and active while still enjoying your getaway than taking a yoga class right on the beach? Island Yoga Space is located on the northern end of the island and offers all kinds of different opportunities for yoga in Anna Maria Island, but their most popular offering is yoga on the beach! You can bring your own mat or borrow one from the studio, then set up on the sand and get in touch with nature throughout your yoga practice. These workouts are great for all skill levels, even if you’ve never done yoga before, and the view of the ocean can help relax you more than you’d ever imagine!

Rent a Bike

Anna Maria Island is a carefree and laid-back community, so you definitely don’t need to drive to all the attractions on your itinerary. In fact, taking advantage of Anna Maria Island bike rentals is one of the best ways to explore the island while staying fit! Renting a bike is both budget-friendly and healthy for the environment, plus it makes it easy for you to stay healthy while you’re in town. Some of the island’s most popular bike rental locations include AMI Beach Fun Rentals, Fun and More Rentals, and Beach Bums Recreational Rentals.

Go Kayaking

Want to get on the water but still stay active and healthy? Try kayaking! Kayaking in Anna Maria Island is a true one-of-a-kind experience that anyone, regardless of skill level, is sure to enjoy. For your kayaking journey, you’ve essentially got two main options: renting a kayak to take out on your own or embarking on a kayak tour with one of the many tour companies on the island. Either way, you’ll get a great workout while witnessing the island’s most gorgeous nature and stunning animal species, including tons of birds, fish, and maybe even dolphins!
