Cefn Sidan Beach in Pembrey wins the coveted Blue Flag again
Cefn Sidan Beach in Pembrey has won the coveted Blue Flag again this year.
The Pembrey beach was among dozens of Welsh beaches to be named among the best in the UK and the world.
This year 47 beaches across Wales have been awarded the Blue Flag, 26 beaches won the Green Coast Award and 92, including Cefn Sidan and Pendine, won the Seaside award, after being judged in the Keep Wales Tidy’s Coastal Awards.
The prestigious award is only awarded to beaches, marinas and boats that have the highest quality of water, environmental education and management, safety and services.
It acts as a guarantee to the public that a beach is among the finest not only in the country, but around the world.
Executive board member for regeneration and leisure Cllr Meryl Gravell said: "The Blue Flag is nationally, and internationally, recognised as a symbol of excellence.
“It’s wonderful for Pembrey Country Park and Carmarthenshire that Cefn Sidan continues to gain such a well respected accolade.”
The Blue Flag Award is owned by the independent organisation Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) and runs in 48 countries across the world.
