Things to Do in Holmes Beach, FL
Manatee Beach offers a playground, volleyball courts, and lifeguards, as well as an outdoor all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast. Return in the evening and quench your thirst with a tropical drink while you watch a spectacular tropical sunset.
Look for dolphins and manatees amidst the waves, Black Skimmers and Least Terns nesting on the beach. Between May and October, you can even watch sea turtles come ashore to lay their eggs in the sand!
If you get caught in a short rain shower, duck inside for a quick spa treatment, work out at the local fitness center, go bowling, or catch a movie at the cinema. Island Playhouse has live theater and Holmes Beach also boasts two art galleries worth a visit: Island Gallery West and Artists Guild Gallery. The kids will have a blast at Holmes Beach Skate Park while you take a break from the action and enjoy a little R&R.
If you're staying in one of our beautiful vacation rentals in exciting Sarasota or the small fishing village of Cortez, plan a night in one of our Holmes Beach rental homes for a change of pace. A vacation here promises all the fun in the sun you could want and much more!
