The cleanest beaches in England

According to the results of the inspection of the independent international commission, 65 beaches in England received Blue Flag certificates and 125 more - the national Seaside Award.

The coast of Dorset county is recognized by the international inspection as the most prosperous place for recreation this year - eight beaches at once received a high mark of Blue Flag. The southwest of England is distinguished for its cleanest beaches: from the western point of the Cornwall coast to the eastern point of Dorset, 26 beaches were awarded. In total in England, 65 beaches were given this status, and another 125 received the Seaside Award status award.

The Blue Flag award is a guarantee that tourists will find clean sand or pebbles on the beach, a safe bottom and the highest quality of water; however, the award is not only ecological, but also educational, and to obtain a mark of the best beaches on the map, local authorities are obliged to organize at least five permanent educational projects on the protection of the environment and water area for the local population and tourists.

The best beaches in the southwest of England are: Blackpool Sands; Sandbanks Peninsular, Shore Road, Canford Cliffs and Branksome Chine in Poolee; Alum Chine; Durley Chine; Fisherman's Walk; Southbourne; Carbis Bay; Gyllyngvase; Porthmeor; Great Western; Polzeath; Porthtowan; Trevone Bay; Widemouth Bay; Sandy Bay; Challaborough Bay; Swanage Central; Dawlish Warren; Breakwater Beach; Meadfoot Beach; Oddicombe Beach; Westward Ho! And Weymouth Central.

The best beaches of southeastern England are recognized: Brighton Central, Hove Lawns, Tankerton, Marina St Leonards, Hayling Island Beachlands, Sheerness Beach, Minster Leas, Leysdown Beach, Minnis Bay, West Bay, St Mildreds, Botany Bay, Margate Main Sands, Stone Bay and West Wittering Bay.

Seaside Awards is a national award for the best beaches; its prestige is lower than that of Blue Flag, but it is also an important reference point for tourists. Last year, Bournemouth was named Best City with beach vacation, this year it shared this award with Poole.
