Blue Flag for two Puerto corners
Two of the most beautiful and natural areas of Puerto de la Cruz have been acknowledged by the Foundation for Environmental Education.
The Mayor, Marcos Brito was delighted to receive the “Blue Flag” beach awards for Playa Jardin and San Telmo.
The ceremony was held at the Hotel Taburiente de La Palma, with councillor for health Antonia María Dominguez also present.
Puerto de la Cruz is one of the few municipalities to have two Blue Flags which recognise the quality of the bathing water, services and facilities.
The town’s many natural charms reflect the hand of the artist, César Manrique and it is these corners which have become a hallmark of Puerto both at home and abroad.
The Mayor said he was very pleased Puerto had been able to react to time and achieve the recovery of two spaces now recognised as amongst the best in Europe.
