The ‘Q’ for ‘Quality’ flags will fly on nine beaches on the Costa del Sol this summer with the awards ceremony being held on June 5th.
The ‘Q’ flags relate to services and facilities on beaches in Spain and of the 173 awarded, 58 are in Andalucia. Beaches are judged on equipment, cleanliness, safety, lifesaving and information or services benefiting the tourist.
Surprisingly, considering that the eastern Costa del Sol has the highest volume of visitors, there are no ‘Q’ flags for this section of the coast.
The nine flags on the Costa del Sol are for: El Palo, Pedregalejo, Misericordia and El Dedo in Málaga city, Algarrobo-Mezquitilla, Torrecilla and Burriana in Nerja, Benajarafe and Torre del Mar.
