Greece ranks second in the world this year, after Spain, with 497 of its beaches receiving the Blue Flag label, among 47 countries

In addition, 14 Greek marinas and six sustainable tourism boats were awarded the Blue Flag label for 2020. On a regional level, Halkidiki came first place again, with 94 Blue Flags.

In this way, the excellent quality of water of the Greek coasts and the high level of services they offer, are rewarded, while at the same time the hygiene criteria and the protection of the public health are ensured.

In his message, Minister of Tourism, Haris Theocharis, stressed, among other things, that this year “the Blue Flags are of special importance for Greek tourism, as they also symbolize the desire and willingness to return to normalcy.”
