Greece’s 400 Blue Flags and What it Means for the Travel

Greece’s 400 Blue Flags and What it Means for the Travel | travelling 2 Greece | Scoop.it
Next time you are in Greece and mesmerised by the crystal clear blue waters, take a moment to look up. It is likely that there is a Blue Flag blowing in the wind.

The Blue Flag is an exclusive eco-label awarded by the non-profit Foundation for Environmental Education to beaches and marinas in 46 countries across Europe, South Africa, Morocco, Tunisia, New Zealand, Brazil, Canada and the Caribbean that meet strict criteria regarding:

• Environmental Education and Information

• Water Quality

• Environmental Management

• Safety and Services

Consistency is key because if the criteria are not met at any time during the season or the conditions change, the Blue Flag – awarded on a per-season basis -- may be withdrawn.

Once again, Greece’s beaches and marinas have scored high with an impressive 394 beaches and 9 marinas being awarded Blue Flags in 2012. It is likely that any region in Greece you choose to visit there is a Blue-Flag awarded beach. From the beaches and marinas near Athens, along the Attica coastline to the regions of the Peloponnese, Northern and Mainland Greece, the islands of the Cylcades, Ionian and Dodecanese, and others.

For information on a Blue-Flag beach and/or marina near you in Greece, go to www.blueflag.org
