Grassy Point Preserve in Holmes Beach offers mangrove tunnels on the bay side of Anna Maria Island on the Intracoastal Waterway and nearly 35 acres to explore on land, some of it accessible by boardwalk.

You may see roseate spoonbills (often mistaken for flamingos), roosting pelicans and white ibis, or even one of Florida’s threatened manatees.

Turn east at Gulf Drive and 30th Street, then north on Avenue C.
