About Us

Awards are based on quality of management, cleanliness, water quality and other criteria. The most prestigious being the Blue Flag Awards.

Other awards made to Torbay beaches include the Keep Britain Tidy Seaside Awards and the Good Beach Guide recommendation from the Marine Conservation Society.

The Seaside Award is Keep Britain Tidy’s own award. It recognises and rewards beaches in England that achieve the highest standards of beach management and, in the case of bathing beaches, meet the required mandatory standards for water quality.

Beaches awarded with coveted Blue Flags have water quality which exceeds these standards. To be awarded a Blue Flag - an internationally recognised award - beaches must comply with a number of criteria covering environmental education and information, water quality, environmental management, safety and services.
