Spain and Greece top the list of "blue flag" awarded beaches 2017

With crystal blue waters across lacy shores kissing their vast Mediterranean coastline, Spain and Greece boast not only a great amount of amazing, sun-kissed beaches but also the cleanest waters and well managed beaches in the world.

Spain stands still at the top of the list, a place that holds for three decades consecutively since the awards began in 1987, while Greece ranks second in the list with the cleanest and most quality beaches and marinas in the world and France, Turkey, Italy and Portugal follow respectively in that order, out of the world total of 49 countries.

The region of Valencia on the east coast of Spain boasts the most quality beaches with 129 winning the accolade, while Galicia (northwestern Spain) has 113, Catalonia (northeastern Spain) 95 and Andalusia in the south, 90.


With a total of 486 beaches and 12 marinas, Greece mounts to number two place, with Crete winning 112 blue flags, Halkidiki 71, Ionian islands 55 and Cyclades islands 36.
