1 Mins read

Eight Northern Ireland beaches will display international Blue Flags this summer with five being within the Causeway Coast & Glens area.

The beaches are as follows :

Portrush West Strand & Portrush East Strand

Portstewart, Downhill & Benone

The Blue Flag is awarded to beaches which have high quality facilities and water quality.

The marina in Ballycastle was also awarded a blue flag.

UUP Westminster candidate Richard Holmes said “The award of five Blue Flags is a great result for the council area and reinforces that we are Northern Ireland’s premier tourist offer. It is also a tribute to the various agencies involved in looking after the beaches.

We have miles of beautiful beaches so head to the north coast to see for yourself.”
