Morocco Has More Blue Flag Beaches Than Canada!

Posted in Property News by Colin Timms Tuesday June 17, 2008

A headline that may be hard to believe, but it is absolutely true. Morocco has 13 beaches whose water quality levels satisfy the exacting standards set by the Blue Flag Programme. Meanwhile, Canada can only manage 12 Blue Flag beaches.

Coveted Blue Flag awards are given to beaches that meet high water quality standards; to get an award, a beach must also have access for the disabled and various waste management and environmental procedures in place.

Here’s how the programme is explained on the Blue Flag website:

The Blue Flag works towards sustainable development at beaches/marinas through strict criteria dealing with water quality, environmental education and information, environmental management, and safety and other services.”

The run-down of statistics from the Blue Flag website might raise a few more eyebrows:

There are several Blue Flag beaches in the Casablanca area, Agadir also has a Blue Flag beach and there is a Blue Flag beach in Tangier. Additionally, there are currently two Blue Flag beaches on Morocco’s Mediterranean coastline at Fnideq and M’Diq.

Moroccan Sands has properties for sale in Morocco which are close to some of the award winning beaches. For example, Tangier properties such as Tangier Boulevard, Les Jardins de Malabata and the Emaar Tinja development are within easy reach of Blue Flag beaches.

M’Diq and Fnideq Blue Flag beaches are close to some of Moroccan Sands’ best Med Coast Moroccan properties; Cabo Dream Golf, Colina Smir and The Views are all situated nearby.
