FOUR blue flags have been awarded to the beaches of Marina de la Torre, Piedra Villazar, Venta del Bancal, Ventánicas and El Canta by the Association of Environmental and Consumer Education (ADEAC).
The distinction affirms the beaches as premium bathing locations, factoring in bathing water, environmental management and safety and facilities for beachgoers.
The flags were hoisted by the Mayor of Mojacar, Rosa Maria Cano, accompanied by the Councillor for Tourism, Emmanuel Aguero, and members of the town hall.
For the summer season this year, Mojacar has 25 rescuers equipped with two jet skis, an ambulance and six amphibious chairs and a specialised lifeguard for people with disabilities. Lifeguards are on duty between 11.00hrs to 19.00 hrs each day.
The local council welcomed the blue flag status, saying that it reflected the municipalities work to improve its coastline and efforts to give beachgoers the best possible experience.
