Blue Flag 2024 in Italy

Italy has once again confirmed itself as a true excellence on the international tourism scene, winning no fewer than 485 Blue Flags for the year 2024. This is an extraordinary achievement that rewards the quality of our coastlines, commitment to environmental management, and the offer of high-level tourist services. Compared to the year 2023, 10 more municipalities were awarded with 81 tourist landings, over 11% on a global scale.

From the Cinque Terre to the splendid islands of Sardinia, passing through the coves of Apulia and the seaside villages of Campania, the Bel Paese boasts a unique landscape heritage capable of satisfying every need. The recognition of Blue Flag goes beyond the borders of the sea and also extends to inland waters such as lakes, to the awarding of beauty and sustainability. In fact, the award-winning municipalities stand out for the efficiency of the services they offer, the responsible management of the territory and the promotion of environmentally friendly tourism.

The awarding of Blue Flag represents an important opportunity to enhance the territory and promote Italy as a tourist destination of excellence, also because in Italy we have the most beautiful beaches. 

Blue Flag: the criteria and requirements for awarding them

Blue Flag: the criteria and requirements for awarding them

Ischia - Campania

In 2024, 485 Blue Flags will proudly fly over Italy's coastlines, a certificate that rewards not only the beauty of Italy's beaches but also the commitment of the institutions and citizens of the various localities, aimed at protecting the environment and promoting their territory through sustainable management that avoids waste.

The criteria for awarding the Blue Flag are quite strict and complex and take several aspects into consideration:

Water quality: This is a fundamental parameter. The water quality must be exceptional and must comply with the parameters set by the regulations in force. Analyses and sampling are constantly carried out to monitor the levels of pollution and microorganisms in the water, so as to establish its cleanliness. 

Facilities: The sea water is obviously fundamental in the choice of bathers, a clearer sea influences the choice towards a less clear sea, what influences bathers a lot, however, and is a fundamental criterion for the award of the Blue Flag, are the services offered. Obviously, it is necessary to offer adequate and efficient services to bathers, such as rescue services, health care, hygiene facilities and waste separation. The accommodation facilities and bathing establishments can offer additional services to customers that tend to put the bather at ease and influence his or her choice of beach or establishment to go to.

Environmental management: The resort must demonstrate a concrete commitment to environmental protection by taking appropriate measures for sustainable land management, pollution reduction and enhancement of natural resources.

Safety: Blue Flag beaches must be safe and accessible to all, with adequate prevention and rescue measures. Accessibility goes hand in hand with inclusion and prevention. Access on beaches and in the water also for people with motor disabilities.

Let's find out together which locations and beaches have been awarded this prestigious recognition. Blue Flag 2024, from north to south!
