CLEANEST, most convenient, easiest to access if you have mobility troubles, best facilities and, now, for the first year ever, the safest ones to catch the rays on post-pandemic without having to worry about catching Covid-19 – beaches, yacht marinas and cruise ports which are awarded the élite kitemark, the blue flag, are officially the best and of the highest quality.

This worldwide award is announced every year, and recipients on Spain's coast have been revealed this week.
