The Blue Flag Guide for 2010 has just been published, listing the Fountation for Environmental Education’s approved beaches. Their criteria are based around Environmental Education and Information; Water Quality; Environmental Management and Safety and Services.
We’re delighted to see that Puglia has ten beaches that have won a Blue Flag, two of them within 20 minutes of Trullo Solari. Camerini Creta Rossa, Costa Merlata Torre Pozzelle and Lido Morelli Rosa Marina.
The water along the coast here is indeed beautiful. The extreme turquoise and sparkle at the beach can take your breath away. It can be frustrating out of season when the beaches themselves aren’t cleaned, and can be littered within debris from the seas. But now things are warming up, the sand cleaners are out, preparing the shores for the beautiful Italian bodies to be stretched out in the coming months.
