Blue Flag

The Blue Flag is a voluntary eco-label awarded to more than 4000 beaches and marinas in 48 countries across Europe, South Africa, Morocco, Tunisia, New Zealand, Brazil, Canada and the Caribbean.

The Blue Flag works towards sustainable development of beaches and marinas through strict criteria dealing with Water Quality, Environmental Education and Information, Environmental Management, and Safety and Other Services.
The Blue Flag Programme is owned and run by the non-government, non-profit organisation the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE).


Nearly a third of Cornwall is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

From the spectacular coast and rugged uplands to the tranquil wooded valleys and hidden coves and creeks, the Cornwall AONB is indeed outstandingly beautiful and has the same status and protection as a National Park.
