Blue Flag

Blue Flag

The Blue Flag is an award granted annually by the Foundation for Environmental Education to beaches and marinas that satisfy a series of environmental criteria, as well as providing specific services. It is awarded to beaches in more than 30 countries in Europe, South Africa, New Zealand, Canada, and the Caribbean. The Blue Flag criteria demand that there be provision for protecting the quality of the water, visitors’ safety, the provision of general services, and the quality of the environment.

Would you like to visit a country with some of the best beaches in the world? Then grab your swimsuit and come to Spain! You can choose from 579 beaches, 100 marina resorts and five sustainable tourist boats, all distinguished with the prestigious Blue Flag award, thanks to their quality and safety. Crystal-clear waters, coves, cliffs, broad stretches of sand, and all bathed in radiant sunshine… Spain has exactly what you want. Spain has what you need.

Spain has come top of the list of nations eligible for recognition as part of the Blue Flag system. In other words, this summer you’ll find the Blue Flag flying on one out of every five Spanish beaches, and one of every six Blue Flag beaches throughout the world will be in Spain. What does this distinction guarantee? Beaches where you can find information on all the nature spaces throughout the area, specialised life-saving services, first-rate water quality, signposted areas for surfing, kite surfing, water craft, pedalos, etc., easy access…
