Are some British Blue Flag Beaches under threat?

 

From 2015 the qualification levels for the prestigious Blue Flag that recognises the cleanest beaches across Europe is being tightened up and this may cause some British beaches to struggle.

It is reported that beaches will require a longer (up to 5 years) clean track record and this puts at risk some beaches in the North West of England, including Blackpool and Morecambe because of some current pollution issues that have yet to be fully resolved.

We hope that these issues can be resolved quickly as we all want high quality beaches to visit across the UK.

If you are heading out for a day at the beach this Bank Holiday you can see a list of the current English Blue Flag beaches and Scottish Blue Flag beaches

Best Beaches in Scotland – Blue Flag Awards and Seaside Awards

OK, so with grey skies over head our timing isn’t brilliant, but we have just updated our list of Blue Flag beaches in Scotland.

If you are planning to head to the beach this summer in Scotland check out the list of iconic Blue Flag beaches in Scotland .  The internationally recognised Award is an indication of great quality beaches that offer your family a great holiday experience and so are well worth checking out before you travel.

In addition to the Blue Flag beaches we have also listed the Scottish coastal areas that have received the Seaside Award. A programme run in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, the Seaside Award recognises the different character of the beaches in these countries in 2 categories, Resort and Rural. We think the Seaside Award is another very helpful indication to those holidaying in the area where to find the best of the beaches.
