Cleanest beaches in Liguria will receive most of the Foundation for Environmental Education’s blue flags in 2020

Italy’s cleanest beaches: The Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) is the world’s largest environmental education organization with members in 77 countries. Through our five groundbreaking programs, we enable people to take meaningful and targeted action to help create a more sustainable world.

The legendary Blue Flag is one of the world’s most recognized voluntary eco-labels for the cleanest beaches, marinas and operators of sustainable boat tourists. In order to qualify for the Blue Flag, a number of strict environmental, educational, safety and accessibility criteria must be met and met.


At the heart of the blue flag program’s ideals is to connect the public with their surroundings and encourage them to learn more about their surroundings. It is therefore necessary to offer and promote environmental education activities, as well as a permanent display of information relevant to the site, in relation to biodiversity, ecosystems and environmental phenomena.

A thousand thanks to our many members and adoptive parents of organic trees! Thanks also to you, the beaches in Liguria, the cleanest beaches in Italy, deserve this great award!

After all, our large organic area is located directly above the coast and contributes to this great development with its sustainable agriculture. For us, it’s a great motivation to continue and expand that path.

The criteria for evaluation: cleanest beaches

The municipalities must in order to preserve the Blue Flag for the cleanest beaches in Italy:

  • issue information on the environment of the coastal zone, bathing water quality, codes of conduct and the Blue Flag programme itself, as well as offering environmental activities;
  • Comply with bathing water quality and treatment requirements: analyse a water sample at intervals of no more than 30 days and inform it after a further month at the latest,
  • establish a beach management commission, comply with legal requirements, comply with waste management standards;
  • Ensure the presence of lifeguards, first aid equipment and safe access to the beach, as well as provide contingency plans.

If there are higher national standards for individual criteria, such as water quality, then they take precedence. The Blue Flag is often used as a flagship of certain tourist regions. If a beach area is awarded the flag, this should indicate a very high standard of cleanliness of the bathing water and the surrounding nature.
