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.
