THE beaches of Mallorca resort Calvia have gained the distinction of meriting more Q flags for quality than anywhere else in Spain.
Calvia Mayor Alfonso Rodriguez Badal was in Madrid on Monday for the official presentation by Spain’s Industry, Trade and Tourism Minister Reyes Maroto of the municipality’s 15 Q flags for beaches including Magaluf, Palma Nova, Santa Ponsa and Palmira in Peguera.
The distinctions are awarded by the ministry’s ICTE Spanish Tourism Quality Institute.
“The fact the ICTE has recognised Calvia as the municipality with the most Q flags for quality reflects what quality means for Calvia in general as a destination, and what it means for its beaches. We will continue working to maintain this quality”, the Mayor pledged.
Rodriguez Badal also took the opportunity to comment on the safety of Calvia’s beaches. This, he said, together with the quality recognitions, means the locality is “going to continue having beaches which give confidence to both tourists and to residents so that they can enjoy them and so they continue to be the attraction for our high season at a complicated time.”
