The Altea Yacht Club has been awarded the blue flag between the marinas. It has 360 sports moorings, where you can enjoy water activities such as rowing, kayaking, paddle-surfing, diving or sailing.
It should be remembered that the bay of Altea receives every year the 5 Qualitur flags, a quality badge for the excellence of its waters and the quality of its services, as well as its environmental respect and accessibility of its beaches. This recognition allows Altea to be consolidated as a reference tourist destination in the Mediterranean, being among the top 10 beach destinations according to the Trivago portal.
The Blue Flag is an annual award developed by FEE (Foundation Environmental Education Forum, represented in Spain by ADEAC), and which certifies the environmental quality of beaches and coastal areas. To obtain this badge, the following criteria are evaluated:
quality of bathing water, environmental information and education, environmental management, safety, services and facilities.
