5200 Gulf Drive, Holmes Beach
Anna Maria Island, Florida
Martinique South and Martinique North at 5200 Gulf Drive in Holmes Beach, FL. This is the only high-rise condominium on Anna Maria Island. Some of the units are available as vacation rentals.
Martinique South at 52nd Street. There are parking spaces for public access at 52nd Street, but not many. You can see the wooden steps that lead from the street to the beach.

Martinique North building. These units are in the half-million dollar range.
The dunes in front of Martinique North. When I was surfing back in the mid 1970's there was almost no beach here at all. During a high tide the waves smashed right up against the seawall in front of the condo, which is now mostly covered with sand and vegetation.

Trail from the street to the beach between Martinique North and South. Facing the street (Gulf Drive). There are a couple of public parking spots.
