Wales has some of the most beautiful and well managed beaches in the world. The Wales Coast Awards help raise environmental awareness, recognise good practice and promote Wales as an international destination.
We’re proud to run the Blue Flag Award; the UK Seaside Award and the Green Coast Award. From high quality resort beaches to quiet little gems, we’ve got it covered. While our beaches are closed, there will be no Blue Flags flying in Wales. Whilst they are closed, we will continue to maintain Blue Flag standards across our beaches and marinas. Link to Welsh
A world-renowned eco-label trusted by millions around the globe
Recognising those beaches that are ‘hidden gems’ – the beautiful, untouched, rugged beaches that line so much of the Welsh coast
The Seaside Award is run in Wales and Northern Ireland
