Holmes Beach is a city on Anna Maria Island in Manatee County, Florida, United States. It is part of the Bradenton–Sarasota–Venice Metropolitan Statistical Area. The city occupies the central part of Anna Maria Island and is one of three municipalities on the island. The others are Bradenton Beach in the south and Anna Maria in the north.
Holmes Beach was named for John E. Holmes, Sr., the property developer who started this planned community after World War II.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 1.7 square miles (4.4 km2). 1.6 square miles (4.1 km2) of it is land and 0.1 square miles (0.26 km2) of it (6.36%) is water.
Included in the city limits is the adjacent bayside island of Key Royale, formerly known as School Key. It was uninhabited until 1960, when a bridge was built joining it to the Holmes Beach section of Anna Maria Island; development then began.
