We are now located right inside a Blue Flag beach, which means next time you come you will be enjoying the advantages of this certification. This world-renowned eco-certification means the beach is clean and accessible; has great water quality; meets high safety standards; and is working hard to protect local shorelines and ecosystems.
The iconic Blue Flag is one of the world’s most recognized voluntary eco-label awarded to beaches, marinas, and sustainable boating tourism operators. To qualify for the Blue Flag, a series of stringent environmental, educational, safety, and accessibility criteria must be met and maintained.
Now, Playa el Médano is part of this program, the reason for which, if you are a good observer probably have seen a cleaner beach, with more signs and information.
This certification is the result of the conjoint efforts made by the association of business owners around the beach "Asociación de Colonos de El Médano" who saw the importance of having a clean, well-maintained beach for everybody to enjoy.
