This distinction is granted by ADEAC to coastal environments next to blue flag beaches.

The bay of Altea has recently been recognized as Sendero Azul, a distinction awarded annually by the Association for Environmental and Consumer Education (ADEAC) to paths and itineraries that have been transformed into valuable resources for interpretation and environmental education, close to beaches with blue flags or in inland territories.

Altea has the honour of joining twenty-one other municipalities in the region.

The Councillor for Infrastructures, Diego Zaragozi, confirmed: “This is an important recognition that only a hundred trails in Spain have, one more example of the importance of valuing our trails and how caring for them with the incorporation of signage and explanatory and interpretive panels make it an important educational resource and tourist attraction.”

“The trail is very accessible, so it will give more visibility to the important natural spaces through which it runs, one more action for the promotion of our natural heritage,” concluded the Councillor.

The Award ceremony will be held on February 24 in Santiago de Compostela.
