Beautiful Beaches Gain Top Awards
Gower beaches keep scooping up the awards and accolades!
Keep Britain Tidy have just announced that the International Blue Flag Jury have again awarded our beaches with four Blue Flags, which will be proudly flown at each beach; Bracelet, Langland, Caswell and Port Eynon Bays.
The Blue Flag indicates that these beaches have excellent water quality and outstanding facilities that meet high European standards. This means that families and watersport fans can enjoy a clean and safe beach experience, to maximise their fun at the seaside.
Each of our Blue Flag beaches are also patrolled by RNLI lifeguards who ensure watersport enthusiasts and swimmers can use the beach together safely. And at Caswell Bay, only licensed Surf Schools can use the beach to ensure high safety standards are maintained.
Simon Jayham of Surf GSD who is licensed to operate at Caswell Bay said, 'this is an excellent Swansea Council initiative as only properly accredited Surf Schools use this popular beach, ensuring the safety of all users. We are delighted to be the first licensed Surf School at Caswell Bay.'
Steve Hopkins, Tourism Manager, Swansea Council said, 'awards and high safety standards, coupled with our outstanding scenery make our beaches a draw for visitors, this is especially important in 2012 as our coastline is in the spotlight with the opening of the Wales Coast Path this month. And we have a consistent reputation for safe, beautiful beaches for walking, watersports, and family fun.'
