Santa Teresa gets its Blue Flag for 2012



I am proud to annouce that our beaches of Mal Pais and Santa Teresa have received their 2012 Blue Flag.

The Blue Flag Ecological Program was created in response to the imminent dangers of beach pollution, its repercussions on public health and the tourism industry. It has reached its twelfth year of operations, with a marked increase that began in 2002.

Besides being a program that has managed to coordinate efforts between various institutions involved, it also allows citizen participation and our local community and its businesses have all played their part in ensuring we meet the necessary standards required.

The Ecological Blue Flag is granted annually to those communities and local schools that have reached, at a minimum, 90% of that which is required by the end of the year. In the case of coastal communities that belong to the Blue Flag program, additional efforts will be recognized for two and now even four stars if they make efforts in other considered areas to achieve overall development, within the proposed focus.
