Arona increases this summer the number of beaches on its coast where the Blue Flag flies and goes from two to three points, highlights the City Hall. Until now, it was hoisted on the beaches of Las Vistas and El Camisón, to which is added the beach of Los Cristianos, where it had not been hoisted since 2016. This Tuesday, the mayoress, Fátima Lemes, together with the first deputy mayor and Councilor for the Environment, Clari Pérez, returned to raise the flag on the main beach of the tourist center of The Christians. An act in which other members of the local Corporation were also present.
The Consistory recalls that this international awardawarded by the Association for Environmental and Consumer Education (Adeac), certifies the quality of the water, the safety and the “high level” of the services offered in these coastal areas.
Lemes assured that this Blue Flag is a symbol of commitment on the part of the municipality “to continue striving to improve safety, beach services and work more on environmental matters. “The objective is to access tourist excellence, something fundamental for an international destination such as Arona”.
The Councilor for the Environment took the opportunity to recognize the “commendable work that, day by day, is carried out by the beach maintenance personnel and those who provide the surveillance and adapted bathroom service, because without them Arona would not have these flags.”
The Blue Flag is a symbol of quality and safety that guarantees that the places that have it are sustainable, safe and reliable tourist destinations, which meet strict criteria of excellent water quality, environmental management, legality, accessibility and prevention, agreed upon internationally, pointed out the mayoress of the municipality.
