Anna Maria Island, on Florida’s west coast near the mouth of Tampa Bay, has been a popular beach vacation destination for more than 100 years. From the first page on I was enchanted with the plot, full of life lessons and descriptions of an utopic island not distant nor impossible to imagine in our present time. A few months later, the Swan imploded, revealing the Island to the outside world, at which point Widmore then sent armed mercenaries to the Island.
Create the ultimate romantic getaway and combine our five or seven night accommodation packages with our Island Wedding Package, Renewal of Vows Package, Romance Package, Spa Package or Scuba Diving Package. I still enjoy exploring these islands myself and now I get to help tourists and fishermen from around the US and the world explore them too.
What could be better than spending a beautiful day on the water exploring these barrier islands. Another island within Burias, can be compared to that of Kapurpurawan rock formation except for its color. Turtle Island comprises 3 small islands where green and hawksbill turtles come ashore to lay their eggs.
One of these is Matangi – a horseshoe-shaped island with untouched tropical rainforests and white sand beaches. Historically, Margaret Island served as a private park for Hungarian royalty and you can see why. Looking south, the chain continues way beyond Barra in a submerged mountain range of uninhabited islands: Sandray, Pabbay, Mingulay and Berneray to finish.
The Arikok granite rocks in this park also exhibit markings of the earliest island inhabitants like the thousand-year old drawings of the Caquetio Indians. The area’s marine attractions include Pulau Pengu National Park (Turtle Island National Park) and the Pulau Sipadan, one of the world’s great dive destinations.
