Blue Flags 2017


Today’s recommendation is to swim safely in one of the beaches with the blue flag.
The 2017 "Blue Flag" awards concerning beaches and marinas have been announced. The Blue Flag is an international institution that awards the organized beaches with strict criteria such as quality of swimming water, environmental management, first aid, lifeguard services etc. The International Committee awarded this year a total of 486 beaches and 9 in Greece, which is in 2nd place of the world ranking. Santorini retained the four Blue Flags same as last year, two at Kamari, one in Perissa and one in Agios Georgios and added two more, in Perivolos and Vlychada.
