Tenerife’s beaches flagged as cleanest in Canaries
- 2016 Blue Flag Awards announced 25th May
- Tenerife awarded 15 Blue Flag beaches
- Cheap Holidays Tenerife offer discounted beach holidays this summer
It’s that time of year again, with the annual Blue Flag Awards being announced this Wednesday.
Hot off the press, the awards for the Canary Islands have been pre-released with Tenerife achieving an impressive 15 Blue Flags for its beaches, an increase of 4 since 2015.
Of the other Canary Islands Gran Canaria was awarded 12, Fuerteventura and Lanzarote 6, La Palma 5, and 1 for La Gomera, making Tenerife the most awarded of any Canary Island.
Jodi Beard, Marketing Director of holiday planning specialists Cheap-Holidays-Tenerife.com, which offer discounted flights to and holiday accommodation in the popular southern area of the island comments,
“We couldn’t be happier with these results! Two of my favourite beaches, Las Vistas and Los Cristianos on the popular southern area of the island, have been awarded Blue Flags this year and all of us at Cheap Holidays Tenerife are very proud. It’s great to see a beach that I visit each weekend awarded a Blue Flag, it confirms to me that Tenerife has the best beaches in the Canaries”
Other Blue Flags awarded in Tenerife include Playa La Arena in Santiago del Teide which has retained Blue Flag Status for nearly 30 years and the popular Troya (I and II), Torviscas, El Duque and Fañabé in the much loved Adeje municipality.
The Blue Flag awards are announced each year worldwide by the Foundation for Environmental Education across almost 50 countries. Blue Flag beaches are judged on four different categories: water quality, safety and services, environmental management, and environmental education and information. Attaining Blue Flag status is seen as the gold standard for beaches and is a highly sought-after accolade.
With more Blue Flag beaches this year than anywhere else in the Canary Islands, Tenerife is set to become an even more popular destination for beach holidaymakers this summer.
“Last year we saw an influx of British tourists to Tenerife, in particular after the Blue Flag awards were announced. With an additional four beaches awarded Blue Flag status this year we would expect a further increase in the island’s popularity as a prime beach holiday destination for summer 2016.”
Indeed in an attempt to meet the growing demand for wider and more frequent access to the Canary Isle, a number of airlines have launched new routes from the UK. Norwegian Airlines will fly a charter route from Cardiff to Tenerife South until September 27th 2016 on behalf of Thomson and First Choice, Ryanair’s winter schedule will see weekly flights to Tenerife South from Belfast, Bournemouth and Newcastle and in summer 2017, Thomson and First Choice will be introducing weekly flights from Humberside and Liverpool.
With most of these new routes being operated by budget airlines, it’s clear that affordable holidays remain a priority for British travelers with Cheap Holidays Tenerife providing an affordable way to holiday in Tenerife, promising to beat the price of any other genuine accommodation-only seven-night holiday by a minimum of £100.
