Greece is once again second in the world on the Blue Flag 2019 quality award list for beaches, marinas and sustainable tourism boats, according to the Hellenic Society for the Protection of Nature (EEPF).

Blue Flag 2019

The country ranked second on the Blue Flag 2019 quality award list among 47 countries with 515 beaches, 15 Greek marinas and four sustainable tourism boats. Last year 519 Greek beaches, 15 marinas and one sustainable tourism boat were honoured.

The iconic Blue Flag is a world-renowned voluntary eco-label, awarded to beaches, marinas, and sustainable boating tourism operators, trusted by millions around the globe. The program is operated under the auspices of the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) and is headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark. The Blue Flag award has a duration of one year. However, EEPF and FEE inspectors often make surprise visits to the country’s award-winning beaches between July and August and marinas all year round in order to check whether the criteria of the Blue Flag program are met. Most of the Blue Flag 2019 beaches can be found in Halkidiki.
