Blue Flags

As we talked about last week, Calpe’s beaches have maintained an excellent standard in quality and services to the point of being awarded with the prestigious Blue Flag for excellence.

At a recent ceremony held in Madrid, the Tourism Minister, Miguel Sebastian, personally handed to Beaches Councilman, Antonio Romero, the Q for quality certification flags for touristic places as La Fossa and the Arenal-Bol beaches .

These beaches have been awarded with the tourism quality merits due to its unsurpassed conditions and tourist services and public facilities.

Thus, the Fossa and El Arenal-Bol are the only beaches on the Costa Blanca that have this emblem awarded annually by the Institute for Spanish Tourism Quality. In all Alicante province  only Benidorm, Torrevieja and Orihuela have this distinction.

While the beaches of the Arenal-Bol and Cantal Roig will look wave again this year the Blue Flag of excellence of its waters and facilities, the urbanism council services will move on and install 2 rescue booths, one in each beach.
