Cyprus leads the way in 2016 European Blue Flags.

Date: 08/06/16

The prestigious Blue Flag certification by the Foundation for Environmental Education is recognised and trusted by millions worldwide.

A country and a community feels a sense of pride when one of its beaches receives a blue flag, which is the highest European assessment for quality. When the scheme first began in 1997, only 13 beaches in Cyprus received Blue Flags. Today Cyprus has a total of 57 Blue Flagged beaches, which is 2 more than last year. 

The Mediterranean island of Cyprus is known for its clean blue seas. Paphos has recently been awarded multiple Blue Flags for its lovely beaches. In addition, three of those beaches have been awarded a 20-year Blue Flag certificate, these beaches include the Municipal Baths, Vrysoudia A and B.
