Welsh beaches, marinas and boat tour operators have been ranked among the best in the world. The status gives local people and visitors the confidence to know that our beaches are well maintained.

The awards act as a guarantee that South Tyneside has one of the best beaches in the world.

Research from Keep Britain Tidy has revealed cleanliness of the beach is the number one cause for concern for families visiting beached in England - with 40% worrying about unclean water, 38% put off by litter and two in five (42%) saying they're put off by dog mess.

"It's brilliant to see so many beaches winning Blue Flag and Seaside Award status this year, thanks to dedication and hard work of beach staff and volunteers". For three decades, the Blue Flag programme, which is owned by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE), has had a transformational impact on water quality, environmental awareness, protection, safety and services.

The South West retained its crown as Britain's beach capital with 26 Blue Flag and 50 Seaside Award standard shores.
