The Association of Environmental and Consumer Education (ADEAC) has delivered the blue flags of Playa Jardín and San Telmo.
The presentation took place during a ceremony held in the municipality of San Bartolomé de Tirajana, in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
After the deliberation of the international jury, the two beaches of Puerto de la Cruz received this annual award, which highlights the exce-llence of its waters and facilities and the hygienic-sanitary measures put in place by the council.
Puerto de la Cruz becomes one of the few municipalities that brings together two blue flags on its two beaches, recognising the quality of the waters and bathing areas, its environmental and safety management, as well as its services and facilities.
Councillor for beaches, Javier González said: “To have the two blue flags in Playa Jardín and San Telmo is the result of constant improve-ments. It is good news for residents who can enjoy their beaches with total peace of mind and will undoubtedly be a great draw for tourists.”
