Costa Levante News - - NEWS -

By Sa­man­tha Kett OLIVA'S beaches have won back all their 'Q' for 'qual­ity' awards and will keep its four blue flags for the 2019 sea­son.

The Pau Pi, Aigua Blanca and Aigua Morta beaches have been able to re­new both, whilst the Ter­ra­nova-Bur­guera has kept its blue flag and, along with the Rab­dells and the Oliva side of Les Deveses – which is ge­o­graph­i­cally in El Verger but owned by Dè­nia (Ma­rina Alta) – have re­newed their ISO 14001 kitemarks.

These pres­ti­gious awards de­note ex­cep­tional qual­ity in terms of tourism, in­clud­ing safety, hy­giene, disability ac­cess and car­ing for the en­vi­ron­ment.

First aid, life­guard ser­vices, waste man­age­ment, clean­ing and main­te­nance, toi­lets, foot-show­ers, wooden walk­ways, and one-off events and en­ter­tain­ment on the beaches are judged.

Whilst the blue flag is a world­wide award, the 'Q' cer­tifi­cate comes from the Span­ish In­sti­tute for Qual­ity in Tourism (ICTE).
