Tenerife beaches awarded prestigious blue flag symbols

The internationally recognized blue flag symbol of quality has been awarded to 11 Tenerife beaches. They are Leocadio Machado and La Tejita (El Médano), Las Vistas (Los Cristianos), Troya I-II (Playa de las Américas), Fañabe, El Socorro (Los Realejos), Playa Jardín and San Telmo (Puerto de la Cruz), Mesa del Mar (Tacoronte), and finally, the doyenne of them all, Playa la Arena, which has won the prestigious bandera azul for the 22nd consecutive year. The blue flag symbol is given for beaches which comply with extremely high sanitary and environmental requirements, and which provide toilet facilities, life guards, first aid, information and environmental education, security … and of course clean beaches and crystal clear waters. Having won this award for 22 years running, the pretty little black sand beach at Playa La Arena is now the standard setter for all others throughout the Canaries, and indeed, throughout the whole of Spain.  El Dia La Opinion
