Once Upon A Beach Carts

New Custom 2022 Luxury Lifted Gas Golf Carts!

One of the best things about Anna Maria Island is its charming island pace and style. Slow down and experience the island for all it has to offer by cruising to the beach, stores, or local restaurants in luxurious style in one of our street legal golf carts. Easily breeze off to the beach, stores, and restaurants. Getting to and from a place has never been more fun!

Our Golf Carts Are One of a Kind!

  • This street legal lifted low speed vehicle with extra-large canopy and premium 23” Morpheus tires… all engineered for enhanced stability, predictable handling, and minimizes road noise and vibrations for an exceptionally smooth and quiet ride.
  • Set yourself apart and ride in style with our unique upgraded features like our heavy-duty 14” rims and 23” tires, USB charging ports, fender flares, premium seating, rugged brush guard, and flip top rear seat.
  • Enhanced safety elements include durable overhead handrails, windshield, seatbelts, horn, side mirrors, and easy to maneuver Sportdrive™ steering. LED headlights, turn signals, and running lamps light your drive, make you more visible to traffic, and help to keep the fun going after sundown.
  • Space for arms, legs, and even the beach gear with a rear seat that flips out to provide a rugged bed perfect for chairs, umbrellas, or cooler!
  • Peace of mind. No worries on how or when to plug in as our gas-powered carts will run all day and night if fueled. No access to plugs or extension cords needed! Plus, parking is a bit less tricky with use of reserved Golf Cart parking spots available at many beach access points. Making those breezy beach trips even breezier!

Our Low Speed Vehicles LSVs are titled, tagged and licensed and are required to operate under the laws just as a car would. All drivers must hold a valid driver’s license. LSVs can be driven on any road on the island with a speed limit of 35 mph or under but can not be used to cross the bridges. Golf carts however are limited in where they can be driven as they can not drive on main thoroughfares. Neither can be driven on sidewalks or bike lanes. If you are driving on a main street and holding up traffic, it is recommended you pull aside to allow car traffic to pass you alleviating traffic congestion during busy times on the island.

Our cities are imploring the help of companies that rent golf carts and LSVS to ensure our guests know and follow the rules of the road. Please drive responsibly and respectfully of others for the safety and sanctity of our island!
