Spain has 590 blue-flag beaches

The Association for Environmental Education and the Consumer (ADEAC) 2018 has announced that Spain has been awarded 590 blue flag beaches. To qualify for a blue flag award beaches must meet strict criteria.

These include high standards of -
• hygiene,
• sanitary conditions,
• safety,
• water quality,
• accessibility
• and availability of lifeguards

In 2018 Spain was awarded 11 more blue flags in Spain than in 2017 by the Association for Environmental Education and the Consumer.

Interestingly there is nothing new here. Spain has held this crown every year since the award was started back in 1987. European beaches dominated the awards in general. In addition to Spain’s leading position, Greece came second with Turkey, France and Italy third fourth and fifth respectively.

Costa Blanca is world renowned for the quality of its beaches. Our own area boasts fabulous beaches in Cabo Roig, La Zenia and Playa Flamenca. Whilst Villamartin is a little inland from The Costa, it is only a short drive from the beautiful beaches of the Orihuela Coast. Many of our clients purchasing properties in Villamartin do so because of the proximity of the beaches
