BLUE FLAG: Moraig beach, Benitachell, one of the province’s 60 best beaches.
A blue flag means that a beach meets strict standards for water quality, safety, services and environmental conditions.
Alicante has more than any other province in Spain, with 60 beaches and 14 marinas scooping up one of the coveted annual awards.
Valencia’s beaches received 28 of the flags for its beaches and the region’s third province, Castellon, was given 32 flags for beaches and one for a marina.
With recognition for six more beaches and two more marinas, this was the best result ever, said Jose Ciscar, the region’s vice-president.
One in every five of the Blue Flags awarded in Spain went to a beach in the Valencia Community, Ciscar pointed out.
Only the 123 awarded to Galicia in the north of Spain outstripped this region’s.
The Els Molins beach in Denia received a Blue Flag for the first time while Les Marines, also in Denia, and Teulada’s L’Ampolla recovered those lost last year.
