Award Wining Beaches
Torbay has six award winning Blue Flag Beaches. This award is widely considered the gold standard for beaches. Awarded by the Foundation for Environmental Education, the Blue Flag is internationally recognised.
Whilst most people are aware that Blue Flag certification guarantees the quality of bathing water this is only part of the criteria. At this point it is worth stressing that a Blue Flag beach is not necessarily any better than other beaches. In fact, quite the opposite is true of many of Britain’s smaller, picturesque coves. Meadfoot beach has achieved the award for many years now.
Further along Anstey's Cove has been awarded The Seaside Award. This ward focuses on water quality and environmental management.
We enjoy both beaches equally and both have great facilities. Take a look at www.theseasideawards.org for more information.
