BLUE FLAG BEACHES IN MALLORCA

Renowned for it’s beautiful beaches, luxury villas, mediterranean climate, friendly locals and delicious cuisine, Mallorca has long been the destination of choice for those looking for true relaxation and a safe environment for all the family to enjoy. Offering warm waters and golden sands, Mallorca has also been independently awarded a host of prestigious Blue Flags by the non-government, non-profit FEE (Foundation for Environmental Education).

What are Blue Flag Beaches?

Sought-after awards based on 32 strict criteria. This worldwide commendation recognises both beaches and marinas, and the criteria include the following:

  • Quality Of The Water
  • Cleanliness/Waste Disposal
  • Safety (Including Life Guards)
  • Information For Beach Users
  • Environmental Education
  • Sustainable Local Transportation
  • Protection Of The Coastal Environment

This ensures that visitors know that they can enjoy their luxury holiday in Mallorca, safe in the knowledge that they can relax in comfort. You can find more information via their Twitter Feed @TheBlueFlag.

How many Blue Flag Beaches are there in Mallorca?

Spain has consistently come first for the past number of years with the most dense concentration of Blue Flag Beaches per capita in the world, and within that the Balearic Islands have consistently topped the ‘Regions’ leaderboard. 51 of Mallorca’s beautiful beaches have been awarded the Blue Flag out of a total of 61 beaches across the Islands, showing how blessed this jewell of the Balearic Sea really is.

Are there any local rules I should know about?

Guests can expect beautiful weather in Mallorca, excellent facilities and a plethora of naturally stunning spots to relax. However, we always recommend that any visitor observe local laws and customs to make their luxury holiday as enjoyable as possible. Our guide to ‘Covering Up‘ in Mallorca details the latest Civil Ordnance Law which prohibits beach users from wearing their swimwear away from the beach. This law was passed to encourage a family friendly atmosphere and if broken costs €600 to rectify! (So we recommend packing light beach clothing just in case).
