blue-flag-beaches-spain*Over 550 Spanish beaches hold prestigious Blue Flag award -*1 in every 6 Blue Flag beach worldwide is located in Spain

*The largest Balearic island of Mallorca boasts 41 Blue Flag beaches. Of the 48 nations eligible for recognition in the Blue Flag Programme, Spain has emerged number one. In fact, 1 in every 6 Blue Flag beach is located in Spain signalling good news for property owners with homes on or nearby these certified beaches.

The Blue Flag is a voluntary eco-label owned and run by the non-government, non-for-profit organisation, the European Environmental Foundation (EEF) but what does this distinction guarantee? Beaches flying the flag must meet strict criteria covering environmental education and information, water quality, environmental management and safety & services with regular checks throughout the season to ensure compliance.

Marc Pritchard,Marketing and Sales Manager of leading Spanish house builder Taylor Wimpey España comments,

"Here in Spain we welcome and fully embrace the Blue Flag Programme. When it comes to beaches you will find none more beautiful than in Spain and we are proud of our 7,000km plus coastline.

"We know that clean beaches are an important feature for many people looking for their dream property in the sun and those proudly flying the Blue Flag are particularly sought after. Beaches across Spain and its islands have been vastly improving year on year and it's very pleasing to see the number awarded the Blue Flag rising yet again in 2013 confirming to me that Spain is the best beach capital of the world."

Indeed with such an acclaimed coastline it's no wonder that the TripAdvisor Traveller's Choice Awards of 2013 rated Mallorca, the Costa del Sol and Costa Blanca in the top ten Spanish destinations, all of which boast some of the best beaches in the world with Mallorca boasting 41 Blue Flag beaches, where building giant Taylor Wimpey de España have several stunning developments.
