ee awards 'Blue Flag' cer­ti­fi­ca­tion to four­teen re­sorts in Cam­pa­nia

In 2016, four­teen re­sorts in Cam­pa­nia re­ceived ‘Blue Flag’ cer­ti­fi­ca­tion, awarded by the Foun­da­tion for En­vi­ron­men­tal

Ed­u­ca­tion (FEE) to re­sorts for the pu­rity of their wa­ter. Although most of them are lo­cated in Ci­lento, the coast and is­lands are also cov­ered. Beaches that have re­ceived the award in

Anacapri in­clude Faro Punta Carena, Gradola and the Blue Grotto. Sit­u­ated on the Is­land of Capri, each year, these oases on the Tyrrhe­nian sea, at­tract thou­sands of vis­i­tors. In Massa Lubrense, a colour­ful lit­tle fish­ing vil­lage at the south­ern tip of the Sor­ren­tine Penin­sula, Blue Flag cer­ti­fi­ca­tion was awarded to the Baia delle Sirene, Ma­rina del Can­tone, Ma­rina di Puolo and Recom­mone.

Posi­tano, which dom­i­nates the Bay of Salerno with its long, char­ac­ter­is­tic stair­ways,
