Granada beaches stripped of blue flag award

LAST UPDATED: 11 Jun, 2007 @ 12:16

THE Costa Tropical has been left with only three blue flag beaches after the European Union (EU) stripped beaches at Salobreña and Motril of the high ranking award.
Both the playa de Cable and La Charca were deemed “unfit,” by an EU investigating commission.

The beaches at Carchuna, Calahonda and Marina del Este are the province’s only beaches to have the blue flag distinction, which is awarded for the quality of the water, hygienic conditions and services for tourists.

In total, 14 Spanish beaches have lost the blue flag distinction, which is awarded for high standards in water quality, safety, services for tourists and environmental management.
