About Tortuga Beach Resort

“Favorite Lodging: Tortuga Beach Resort.”  Southern Living.

Here’s what’s great about Tortuga Beach Resort: It’s easy to get to. It’s located on Anna Maria Island, a rare, unspoiled island with vintage charm – totally unpretentious – the kind of place that sweeps you off your feet without even trying with its natural beauty and easy pace. The private white sand beach, located just across the street from the resort, is sprinkled with seashells & views of sea life such as dolphins & manatees. Beach chairs are provided on the beach so you can relax and enjoy the gorgeous pale jade water of the Gulf of Mexico and unbelievably beautiful Suncoast sunsets. There are three heated pools & a boat dock for our guests.

Wow is a word actually used by one of our guests – “All I can says is WOW! Awesome job! I will return very soon.”

There are many reasons why he would have that reaction from the stylish Tortuga Gardens individually owned condominiums, or the views over Sarasota Bay and the Intra-Coastal Waterway from the Bayfront Villas South and North (with their semi-private spa and heated swimming pool), or the tropic charm of the Palm Court South and North Apartments, or maybe even one of the Gulf View Studios with Jacuzzi tubs & views of the indescribable sunsets.

Laid-back Anna Maria Island

On our famously laid-back little island, you’ll find wonderful restaurants and shops, as well as water sports facilities, boat rentals and charters – with golf and tennis not far away. Street fairs, craft shows and musical events are held frequently – take the popular free trolley that runs the length of the island from 6 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. If you love wild life, you’re in for a treat – wonderful wild shorebirds like pelicans, blue herons, oystercatchers and many others – like the bubblegum-pink roseate spoonbills show up everywhere, as do dolphins and the occasional manatee. Loggerhead turtles deposit their eggs on Anna Maria from May through November and, if you’re lucky, you could see a mama turtle making her way across the sand—but please don’t disturb her as she may become disoriented.
