Blue Flag Status
Blue Flag Status
The Blue Flag is a selective eco-label awarded annually by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) to ensure the continued compliance of its criteria. This award requires the beaches and marinas that receive it to comply with a series of specific criteria, based on four main areas:
safety and services
The Blue Flag is managed by the Health Department of the Canary Islands Government through its Directorate General for Public Health.
The international campaign rewards the efforts made by local authorities and marina management to comply with the high levels of demand required. The reward guarantees environmental quality, caring for the environment, accessibility and services, and a high standard of water quality.
Technicians from the Environmental Health Service of the Directorate General of Public Health of the Health Department of the Canary Islands Government work to ensure that conditions are met and collaborate with local corporations requesting assistance when submitting applications for this universally acknowledged award. The technicians permanently oversee the health standards of candidate beaches and marinas and provide guidance for local authorities to ensure that their application for the Blue Flag award is successful.
