All 13 beaches in Tel Aviv have for the first time been awarded a Blue Flag.

In order to qualify for the Blue Flag, beaches must meet a series of stringent environmental, educational, safety related and access-related criteria, Michal Wimmer Luria, Shore Operations manager at the Israeli non-profit Eco Ocean, told i24news.

The beaches in Tel Aviv also guarantee access to the sea through paths and vehicles, allowing people with disabilities to reach the water.

“If a tourist looks for a beach vacation, of course, they are going to look for the beaches that have a blue flag,” said Anat Ehud, from the Environmental and Sustainability Authority of Tel Aviv–Yaffo.

She further highlighted how this result could lead to a boost in tourism for the city.

The world-renowned Blue Flag eco-label is operated under the auspices of the Foundation for Environmental Education, headquartered in Copenhagen.
