The Seaside Award is run in Wales and Northern Ireland.

The Seaside Award is the nationwide standard for the best beaches across the UK. While Seaside Award beaches can be vastly different, the flag is a symbol of quality which ensures visitors are guaranteed to find a clean, attractive and well managed coastal stretch.

At a time when more and more people are choosing to holiday at home, the Seaside Award is vital in ensuring visitors know they are enjoying the best of our beautiful and dramatic coastline.

During 2017, 85 Welsh beaches won a Seaside Award for their quality facilities and as coastal tourism.

The Seaside Award marks ‘sufficient’ water quality at a site, along with good health and safety and facilities.
