Blue Flag 2022 Greece: 581 beaches, 15 marinas, 6 touristic boats

581 beaches, 15 marinas and 6 tourist boats have been awarded with the Blue Flag in 2022, bringing Greece once again in 2nd position in the world, among 53 countries, the Hellenic Society for the Protection of Nature (EEPF) announced on Monday.

Top regional unit with the most Blue Flags is Halkidiki with 96 flags, followed by Attica, Crete and Rhodes.

The international commission awarded a total of 4,194 beaches, 732 marinas and 116 tourist boats around the world.

Greece owns 14% of the awarded beaches worldwide.

Blue Flag criteria include standards for quality, safety, environmental education and information, the provision of services and general environmental management criteria. The Blue Flag is sought for beaches, marinas, and sustainable boating tourism operators as an indication of their high environmental and quality standards.

The “Blue Flag”, the most recognizable ecological quality mark for beaches, marinas and sustainable tourism boats, completes 35 years of application in the world and in Greece.

Note that inspectors of national Blue Flag committee can withdraw the award even in the middle of the season, as they did in the past.

  1. There’s a good map at https://www.blueflag.global/
    No blue flags within 20 miles of me here in the Ionian but certainly not complaining, beaches for sunbathing, swimming and longer ones for a good walk hearing the waves.
    Did Scotland forget to enter, can’t believe there isn’t one blue flag for Scotland. I was thinking the weather (bad)but then i noticed Iceland has a couple.
