Two Sudbury beaches can fly the Blue Flag

Welsh beaches, marinas and boat tour operators have been ranked among the best in the world.

Bridlington North, Bridlington South, Wilsthorpe, Fraisthorpe, Danes Dyke and Flamborough South Landing have all passed the standards for the Seaside Award - Keep Britain Tidy's own award for the beaches that meet the very highest standards for cleanliness and facilities.

Beaches in the south east to win this award are: Worthing Beach, Bognor Regis East, Littlehampton Coastguards and West Wittering.

In the three decades since, this number has soared to 47, including three award-winning marinas and one boat tour operator, meaning Wales has more Blue Flags per mile than anywhere else in the UK.

The awards also acknowledge that Sandhaven has met the required European Union standards for water quality.

"When you see a Blue Flag raised at a beach or marina, you know that it's clean, sustainably managed, and a safe place to swim", she said in a statement.

A further 19 beaches in Wales have gained the Green Coast Award - recognising the "hidden gems" along our coastline - and a total of 83 beaches have achieved the Seaside Award for their good water quality and facilities. "Well done to all those involved".

"The Blue Flag is a mark of the high coastal environment standards which is trusted around the globe".

Swanage Central beach has also picked up both awards.

Allison Ogden-Newton, chief executive of Keep Britain Tidy, said: "Our research shows that almost two thirds of parents would prefer to visit beaches with Blue Flag or Seaside Award status, so growing the number of beaches with an award is vital to encourage more families to visit our handsome coastline".

From today, one beach in Yorkshire will be able to fly a Blue Flag - an global award that tells the public it's one of the best beaches in the world.
