Blue Flag is an annual award and an environmental quality certification system developed by the Environmental Education Foundation (FEE) since 1987. It promotes and rewards participation in voluntary environmental initiatives by municipal authorities.
The criteria for obtaining the Blue Flag are grouped into four areas: Bathing water quality, Environmental education and information, Environmental management and Safety, services and facilities.
Also worthy of note is the blue flag obtained by the Puerto de la Duquesa, which meets the criteria revised periodically, consensual and increasingly demanding legality, sanitation, cleanliness, security and environmental information and management.
Both the mayor of Manilva, Mario Jiménez, and the Councillor for Beaches, Eva Galindo, have worked tirelessly, not only to have the beaches in perfect condition but also to ensure that the storms that have hit the coast in recent months do not adversely affect Manilva’s upcoming tourism high season.
