Salento: Blue Flags 2018
Meledugno and Otranto awarded with Blue Flags
The iconic Blue Flag is one of the world’s most recognised eco-labels awarded to beaches and marine areas as an indication of their high environmental and quality standards, which include standards for water safety, environmental education and information, the provision of services and general environmental management criteria.
For more information you can visit the foundation’s website.
Even this year Salento has been issued with this prestigious award. There are many sea side villages along the coastline between the Adriatic and the Ionic sea awarded with Blue Flags. For example Otranto, Castro, Salve and Melendugno where our Breezes B&B is located.
Melendugno is home to many stunning natural spots with Blue Flag ratings: Torre Specchia Ruggeri, San Foca, Roca with the famous Poetry Cave, Torre dell’Orso and Torre Sant’ Andrea with its stunning off shore rock stacks.
Just a little further south you can find the beaches of Alimini, Baia dei Turchi, Santo Stefano, Otranto and Porto Badisco.
Also you must visit Castro with a natural spring and the Zinzulusa’s Cave named after the stalagtites’ shape “zinzuli” (which means in the local dialect dish cloths).
Instead on the west salento the Salve’s bays who have received the Blue Flag are: Torre Pali, Marina di Pescoluse and Posto Vecchio.
