The Blue Flag assures you, the visitor, that the beaches are clean, safe and environmentally friendly. The award also helps to educate the community about the need and means of caring for our coastline; to promote one of South Africa’s natural treasures; and to help clean and protect our coastline. Blue Flag certification started as an environmental and tourism campaign in Europe to assure visitors that certified beaches are clean, safe and environmentally sound. Blue Flag status is only awarded to those beaches that acheive excellence in water quality, environmental education and information, and adhere to international safety standards. High levels of cleanliness, the quality of facilities (toilets and showers) and professional lifeguard services are key criterion of Blue Flag beaches.
