Technically not located on Anna Maria Island, the fishing village of Cortez is always a favorite spot for locals and tourists alike. Located just on the other side of the intracoastal waterway, Cortez is home to some of the oldest homes and sites in this area. Waterfront living is available with views of Sarasota Bay and the intracoastal waterway. You will fall in love with the charm of these cozy cottages all within the sounds of the birds that accompany any fishing territory. This is a neighborhood unlike any other!
