Record number of Blue Flags fly high across Spain and Portugal this summer
With the results of this year’s Blue Flag awards hot off the press, Spain and Portugal’s coastlines are looking even more inviting to those wishing to dip their toes into clean waters.
• Spain retains top spot in this year’s Blue Flag Awards
• Tenerife attracts beachgoers with impressive 15 Blue Flags
• Algarve’s 88 Blue Flags appeal to second home owners this summer
With a world record 577 Blue Flag’s awarded to Spanish beaches last year (beating their own record of 573 in 2014), it is without a doubt that the Mediterranean country is host to the world’s most pristine beaches. 2016 has proved no different with Spain retaining its top spot adding another 9 Blue Flag beaches to its ever-growing roster.
Leading Spanish homebuilder, Taylor Wimpey España are delighted with the results and have witnessed a surge of interest in seafront properties accompanying the Blue Flag announcement.
Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey España comments,
„We were very excited to hear that Spain has maintained its beach rankings as the best in the world. With the gorgeous Calpe, Alfás del Pi, El Campello and San Juan beaches keeping their Blue Flag status for the past 30 years, it was no surprise to us that the demand for beachfront properties have skyrocketed.“
