You are only moments away

WWhether you are a surfer or a sunbather, South Africa is home to the perfect beach for you. South Africa’s Blue Flag beaches are on par with the best beaches in the world. Located along the extensive 3200km-long coastline, these beaches are conserved and protected through strict ethics that honour the environment.

Sixty-two Blue Flags will be proudly flown at 44 beaches, seven marinas and by 11 sustainable tourism boats around South Africa over the forthcoming 2017/18 South African Blue Flag season. South Africa was the first country, outside of Europe, to introduce the Blue Flag programme, in November 2001. Locally, the initiative has grown from just three beaches in the first year to 41 beaches in 2015/16 to 62 in 2018. Since its launch in 1987, the Blue Flag programme has continued to grow, not only regarding the number of member countries and sites involved but also in its range of expertise within marine and freshwater environments.

TThe Blue Flag programme is active in over 40 countries around the world – and there are now almost 4000 official Blue Flag beaches.
