Margate beaches proudly bear the prestigious Blue Flag Status

Margate beaches proudly bear this prestigious Blue Flag status, so you can be assured of a safe, happy beach holiday on pristine beaches #MargateAttractions

No doubt Margate’s biggest attraction, its stunning Blue Flag beaches. The Blue Flag is a voluntary eco-label awarded to some 3,849 beaches and marinas in 46 countries across Europe, South Africa, Morocco, Tunisia, New Zealand, Brazil, Canada and the Caribbean. The Blue Flag Programme is managed by a non-government, non-profit organisation, the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) and promotes the sustainable development of beaches and marinas. To be awarded Blue Flag status, beaches must meet strict criteria regarding:

Water Quality – including the absence of sewage and waste-water discharges and featuring a low faecal E. Coli count

Environmental Management – beaches must be clean, with plenty of garbage bins, public restrooms and properly maintained buildings and beach equipment

Environmental Education – including information about the quality of bathing water and local ecosystems

Safety and Other Services – including lifeguards, lifesaving equipment, first aid equipment, and management of beach users.

Margate beaches proudly bear this prestigious Blue Flag status, so you can be assured of a safe, happy beach holiday on pristine beaches.
