No change in this year’s Blue Flag awards for Lanzarote, which recognise standards of excellence on public beaches and marinas.
Puerto del Carmen leads the pack, as usual, with four Blue Flags. These will continue to flutter over Playa Grande, Playa de los Pocillos, Playa de Matagorda and Playa Pila de Barrilla (better known as Playa Chica).
Costa Teguise’s Playa de las Cucharas also had its Blue Flag renewed, as did Playa Blanca’s town beach and Arrecife’s Playa El Reducto. Puerto Calero remains the only Blue Flag marina on the island.
Blue Flags are awarded to beaches that fulfil a long list of conditions, including cleanliness,, lifesaving services, public utilities, environmental requirements and disabled access.
