Spain Ranked Number 1 For Blue Flag Beaches – Spain has more blue flag beaches than any other country in the world

Spain Ranked Number 1 For Blue Flag Beaches

The number of blue flag beaches in Spain has fallen slightly this year, to 579, but this is still enough to give Spain the number one ranking worldwide.  7 Spanish beaches have lost their blue flag award this year.  Of the 579 blue flag beaches in Spain, 90 are here in Andalucia.


The blue flag is awarded for water quality, managing cleanliness, educating visitors about environmental concerns and providing sanitary facilities.
