South Africa's Blue Flag beaches 2012/13

update (29 Jan 2013): All three Blue Flag beaches in Mossel Bay achieved top 5-star ratings during the recent unannounced visit by a Blue Flag inspector. The three beaches are De Bakke, Hartenbos and Santos.

36 of South Africa's beaches and four Marinas have been awarded Blue Flag status. The Blue Flag is a certification issued by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) that a beach or marina meets its stringent standards. The main criterias include standards for water quality, safety, environmental education and information, the provision of services and general environmental management criteria. The Blue Flag is sought for beaches and marinas as an indication of their high environmental and quality standards.
