Anna Maria's unspoiled beaches receive national recognition from the Clean Beaches Coalition. Cortez, Manatee, Coquina, Holmes and Anna Maria beaches all received the "Blue Wave" flags. These flags will be flown over the public beaches to boast its certification of "healthy and clean" beaches.
The Blue Wave program is the first national environmental certification for beaches. Now in its 13th year, the program is recognized as a reliable benchmark for well-maintained beaches and eco-friendly tourism.
Friendly and uncrowded, Anna Maria Island offers visitors the chance to get away from the daily hustle and bustle, and enjoy breathtaking sunsets, lush tropical greenery and embrace the quintessential Old Florida beach town.
