The municipality of Ayia Napa announced 1 June that the beaches of the famous resort received 14 "Blue Flags"! In total this year 63 Cyprus beaches were awarded the title of the cleanest.
The best were named such beaches as Konnos, Limnara, Ammos tu Kamburi, Gliki Nero, Pantahu, Luccos tu Manti, Katsarka, Pernera, Vatkya Gonia, Nissi and Nissi Bay, Landa, Makronissos and Ayia Thekla.
Earlier this week, Paphos got 16 similar awards.
Let us recall that the Blue Flag is a world-famous environmental prize that operates under the auspices of the Foundation for Environmental Education. It is a non-profit foundation consisting of 65 organizations in 60 countries of the world that represent Europe, Africa, Oceania, Asia, North and South America. The flag was first presented to France in 1985, and two years later, FEE was created. At that time, the society took a course on environmental education, so the fund quickly became one of the most important "green" organizations out of an incomprehensible undertaking, and the flags became an unquestionable sign of quality.
