Apply now to ensure that your council's beaches are recognised as amongst the best in the world.

 
The past year has been incredibly challenging for us all, including not least of all the UK's travel and tourism industry. According to some reports, the UK could lose up to £22bn of tourism income as a result of the covid-19 pandemic.
 
As we look forward with optimism to 2021, it is clear that it will be more important than ever for the industry to put it's best foot forward, competing on a global scale for both domestic and international spending.
 
That's why we want to see as many UK beaches as possible fly the coveted internationally recognised Blue Flag Award. Our research found that 95% of businesses agree that the Blue Flag Award Is important in encouraging more visitors to an area. 

The Seaside Award is a complimentary award to the Blue Flag Award which celebrates the best of the traditional British coastline.

The Seaside Award focuses on the beach management practices and does not require the environmental education programme of Blue Flag. It is a great way to demonstrate that your beach is safe, clean and has achieved the required standard in bathing water quality.

Many beaches choose to fly both the Blue Flag and Seaside Award to demonstrate that their beach and ocean standards are second to none. Plus if both awards are purchased together councils benefit from a combined application discount.

The application window for both awards is open NOW and will close on Monday 18th January 2021.Click here to apply. If you have any difficult with your application or accessing our application portal get in touch with one of the team at: theseasideawards@keepbritaintidy.org.
