Blue flag beaches in spain

As we have already mentioned in a previous post, the Blue Flag is a European Union award for those beaches in the old continent and the world that have the best natural conditions, leisure and services for tourism.

Well, if you are from Spain, you should feel lucky… Our country is at the top of the list of Blue Flag beaches!
Ahead of Greece (412), France (319), Turkey (311) and Italy (230), Spain has no less than 520 marvellous beaches that you have yet to discover. So why look for a sun and beach destination outside the country?

Here are just a few of the best of the long list:

– Sa Roqueta, Formentera (Balearic Islands): Isolated and uncrowded beach with beautiful crystal-clear waters and soft white sand. Ideal for relaxation.

– Caleta de Fuste, Fuerteventura (Canary Islands): Horseshoe-shaped bay ideal for children thanks to its calm waters and low waves.

– La Barrosa, Chiclana de la Frontera (Andalusia): The 8 kilometres of extension are divided into two beaches, one more urbanised with all the leisure services and the other isolated, perfect for those days when you prefer to relax.

– Los Genoveses, Cabo de Gata (Andalusia): An idyllic and isolated beach where, despite not having any services, you will have one of the best natural landscapes you have ever seen.

– La Concha, San Sebastian (Basque Country): The beach is special more for its picturesque and elegant surroundings than for the conditions of the beach. You won’t regret visiting it!
