BURRIANA beach has achieved national recognition with an Ecoplayas 2021 flag, awarded by the Technical Association for Waste Management and Environment ATEGRUS. The beach has been recognised for its “commitment to the environment, highlighting the implementation of eco-innovations”.
The new residual water treatment plant has been in operation since last year and the town is now reaping the rewards for having one of the most up to date water treatment plants in Europe.
The Ecoplayas 2021 flag commends the quality of the beach waters and sand, accessibility, equipment and services, such as showers, walkways, modules, beds, leisure activities and rescue and first aid systems.
Nerja council has also received praise for its substitution of detergents and conventional cleaning products in favour of others labeled with the European ecological label.
Burriana beach has other received recognitions and certificates such as the Q for Tourist Quality, the Andalucia Safe Beaches and Safe Tourism Certified distinctions for the implementation of a risk prevention system against Covid-19.
