The Ministry of Health of the Government of the Canary Islands reported this Tuesday that sixty Blue Flag awards had been obtained in the 2024 edition for the entire archipelago. Of them, fifty-six correspond to beaches and four to marinas. Meanwhile, in the case of Lanzarote , six blue flags and a marina  have been distributed .

For this year, Lanzarote loses a Blue Flag on Playa Grande in Puerto del Carmen. Meanwhile, it maintains one in El Reducto in Arrecife, Las Cucharas in Teguise, the one in Matagorda, Pila de la Barrilla (or Playa Chica) in Tías and the one in Playa Blanca in Yaiza. Added to this is the Marina Puerto Calero sports port in Yaiza. 

In the Canary Islands, the Blue Flag initiative is managed with the collaboration of the Ministry of Health, through the General Directorate of Public Health of the Canary Islands Health Service. Thus, it distinguishes those beaches and marinas that meet the criteria of excellence in the quality of bathing water , comply with environmental regulations, and have adequate health and safety infrastructure to guarantee the health and safety of their users. .
Blue Flag is an annual award and environmental quality certification system developed by the FEE (Federation of Environmental Education) for more than thirty years. In Spain, this initiative is coordinated by the ADEAC (Association of Environmental and Consumer Education).
