What are Blue Flag beaches?

Blue Flag is an annual award and environmental quality certification system developed by the Federation of Environmental Education (FEE). In Spain, this initiative is coordinated by the Association for Environmental and Consumer Education (ADEAC).

These awards distinguish those beaches and marinas that meet the criteria of excellence in the quality of swimming water, comply with environmental regulations and have adequate health and safety infrastructure to guarantee the health and safety of their users.

Spain has maintained its international leadership in terms of Blue Flag Beaches since 1994.
