Spain is once again the top country worldwide for blue-flags awarded by the Association for Environmental Education and the Consumer (ADEAC). Blue-flags are awarded to those beaches that meet demands on issues such as hygiene, sanitary conditions, safety, accessibility and the prevision of lifeguards.

Spain will be able to fly blue-flags at a total of 590 of its beaches this summer, once again leading the world in the number of quality bathing spots along its vast coastline. Spain also won blue flags for 101 its marinas and five for its cruise ship ports meaning the country will be able to fly a total of 696 blue-flags along its coast line. Greece is second this year, followed by Turkey, France and Italy in that order, out of the world total of  4,423 blue flags in 45 countries.
