Blue Flag and Seaside Award

The Blue Flag and Seaside Awards are aimed at improving the quality of England’s coastline and promoting England’s best beaches.

Blue Flag is an international award presented to well-managed beaches with excellent water quality and environmental education programmes. Seaside Awards are presented to the best beaches in England and celebrate the quality and diversity of our coastline.

Sites are assessed for safety and services, environmental management, water quality and information. In addition, Blue Flag beaches are assessed for their environmental education activities.

When asked, nine out of ten people said cleanliness, safety and assured water quality were key factors in deciding which beach to visit and 93% believe that it is important to preserve and protect our beaches.

Blue Flag is managed by Keep Britain Tidy on behalf of the Foundation for Environmental Education.
