Blue Flag Status 2017-2018

 

We are proud to once again announce that we were awarded, the internationally recognized Blue Flag Status for the 2017-2018 season. 

The Blue Flag works towards sustainable development of beaches and marinas through strict criteria dealing with Water Quality, Environmental Education and Information, Environmental Management, and Safety and Other Services.

The Blue Flag Programme is owned and run by the non-government, non-profit organisation the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE).

About Blue Flag:

 

The Blue Flag Programme, now in its 30th year, is focused on the conservation of marine and coastal habitats, and is designed to raise environmental education and awareness, and increase sound environmental practices among tourists, local populations and beach management.

 

To achieve Blue Flag status, as many as 33 different criteria spanning over four aspects of coastal management must be met and maintained:  water quality, environmental education and information, environmental management, safety and services.  Each Blue Flag site is compelled to conduct several environmental education activities during the year, and to practise effective and efficient conservation management.

 

In South Africa, the Blue Flag programme is managed by WESSA and participating coastal municipalities. In the Southern Hemisphere, the Blue Flag season runs from 1 November to 31 October each year.
