The Blue Fag will be waving once more in Benidorm's Levante, Poniente and Mal Pas beaches. To be awarded the Blue Flag means that these beaches meet the most rigorous conditions of water quality, information, environmental education, security, services and facilities.
Even though it may seem easy to achieve the Flag every year, the truth is that it takes a lot of hard work to perpetuate the high quality of our beaches and the beaches' services
We must take into account that Benidorm is a city that lives and grows alongside the beach, and that this is also a main attraction for tourists, so we must maintain the quality that makes us different from other destinations.
Our beaches also have lifeguard services, cleaning, footbaths, and a high quality of the waters and sands; as well as accessible areas on the beaches for those who have some sort of disability. Additionally, we've got the Benidorm Beach Safety programme that guarantees safe beaches for everyone every day.
Spain has achieved 713 Blue Flags this year, and 615 of them have been for beaches; 25 more than in 2020. Spain is the leader in this classification placing itself in front of countries like France, Italy, Greece, Turkey and Portugal.
The Valencian Community is in the lead of Spain's classification with 137 Blue Flags, in front of Andalucía and Galicia. Particularly, the Alicante province has achieved 74 of them, which means that this area has contributed to more than half of the total Flags in the Community.
