BLUE FLAGS: Antonio Sanchez and other Beaches’ councillors with tokens of FEE recognition

ORIHUELA can now fly the 11 Blue Flags awarded to its beaches, more than any other Valencian Community municipality.

Like his counterparts from other municipalities whose beaches have been awarded Blue Flags, Orihuela’s Beaches councillor Antonio Sanchez travelled to the Oceanografic in Valencia City to collect the flags that are awarded to beaches which meet the stringent standards set by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE).

In fact, Sanchez took possession of 13 Blue Flags in all because as well as the 11 that were awarded to Orihuela Costa beaches, he also collected one more for the Campoamor Marina and another for the Paseo Cabo Roig path.


“I want to thank the members of the team who have made it possible for Orihuela’s beaches, marina and coastal path to continue setting an example of good management, quality and excellence despite two years that have been complicated by storms as well as the pandemic,” Sanchez said.
