As a resident of Residential Resort Cumbre del Sol, you’re no stranger to Blue Flag beaches, such as Cala Moraig which has been awarded this title many times. We’re sure you’ve already fallen in love with its crystalline-waters and superb services and amenities. However, you might be curious to learn more about the other Blue Flag beaches that are just a stone’s throw away from your home in Cumbre del Sol.
The Costa Blanca is a privileged location for many reasons, but the fact that it is the coastline with the most Blue Flags in all of Spain exemplifies why it’s one of the most popular tourist destinations. Spain has been the world leader of Blue Flag beaches since 1987, and this year, the Valencia Community is once again the autonomous community with the highest number of prized beaches. That being said, Alicante is the province with the highest number of all for a grand total of 86 Blue Flags, more than Valencia and Castellon combined.
If you’re unfamiliar with what makes a beach worthy of this title, the recognition is based on four benchmarks:
- The quality of the sandbanks and waters.
- Environmental conditions such as cleanliness, well-appointed sanitary facilities and properly maintained surroundings.
- The presence of lifeguards, rescue and healthcare services, as well as accessibility.
- Environmental education and information about the ecosystem, code of conduct and water quality.
