It doesn’t surprise me that the Canary Islands have been awarded 50 blue flags for the beaches and marinas. The islands do take pride in the environment and nature. It’s pretty evident when walking around and there will always be something on the local news supporting the cause
The awards were announced yesterday by the Federation for Environmental Education, the non-profit organization that certifies that beaches and marines meet the stringent quality criteria, which cover aspects such as water quality, safety, the provision of services, environmental education and information, and general environmental management.
Our small island received 6 of the flags
