Record of number of 23 Malaga beaches awarded blue flag this year


This year no fewer than 23 beaches along the Málaga shoreline have been awarded the prestigious blue flag, the highest number ever. Certified by the international Foundation for Environmental Education, the blue flag is awarded for clean water, a high standard of services, safety, accessibility, cleanliness and infrastructure, as well as sustainable management, so it a big deal when a beach receives this highest qualification.

Not only have 23 beaches on the Málaga littoral been classified with the blue flag valuation, but several of them are located within the Marbella East area, including the best sandy dunes and beaches on the Costa del Sol. From your home at Icon The Residences you’re at one of them in a few minutes, surrounded by sandy, sea, blue skies and amazing panoramic views, as well as beach clubs, restaurants and cafes. Their facilities have been judged according to strict criteria of hygiene, health and environmental responsibility, but key is the fact that the water passed all quality tests as set out in the Bathing Water Directive.

Next time you’re there, just look around and you’ll spot the blue flag that tells you this beach ranks among the top not just locally, but internationally. The same goes for most of the beaches in the Marbella area. For those who own a property at Icon The Residences or come here to spend their holidays, it’s good to know that the nearby beaches are clean, safe, well-facilitated, easy to reach and also managed in a responsible way.
