Puerto del Carmen gets 4 of the 5 blue flags of the island

Only five beaches on the island have achieved the blue flag this year and four of them are in Puerto del Carmen.

The Blue Flag is a voluntary eco-label awarded to more than 3850 beaches and marinas in 48 countries across Europe, South Africa, Morocco, Tunisia, New Zealand, Brazil, Canada and the Caribbean.

The Blue Flag works towards sustainable development of beaches and marinas through strict criteria dealing with Water Quality, Environmental Education and Information, Environmental Management, and Safety and Other Services.

With the decision of the jury of the national Blue Flag Program Lanzarote gets the same results as the previous year, leaving towns like Playa Blanca without a blue flag.

Besides Puerto del Carmen, another municipality that has earned this recognition is Teguise, although only one of its beaches, Las Cucharas in Costa Teguise. On Puerto del Carmen the renowned beaches were the Matagorda, Los Pocillos, Pila de la Barrilla and Playa Grande.
