WHEN tourists are allowed back into Spain, councils along the Costa del Sol will be vying with each other to try to persuade holidaymakers to choose their town or city in which to spend their money.

One incentive will be the quality of the beaches on offer and the Association of Environmental and Consumer Education (ADEAC) has just announced the beaches which have been awarded the coveted Blue Flags of quality.

The full list, which sees some editions and welcome returns especially for Marbella is as follows:


Benalmadena – two beaches

Casares Costa – one beach

Estepona – two beaches

Fuengirola – four beaches

Marbella – five beaches

Mijas – three beaches

Torremolinos – one beach

This recognition is hard won and means that each beach chosen has clean water, well kept sand, good lifeguard attention, is considered a safe, environmentally sound location and has sufficient showers, waste bins and general beach furniture.

Naturally things will be different post the Covid-19 pandemic but this sign of recognition is bound to appeal to visitors tentatively making their first trips back to Spain.
