Number of bandiera blu beaches in Italy in reaches 368.Eight beaches in the Lazio region have been awarded the 2018 bandiera blu (blue flag) status for high water quality standards. The number of Lazio beaches to receive the coveted award is the same as last year however Anzio has been dropped and replaced with Trevignano (on Lake Bracciano) whose Via della Rena beach was included in the award-winning lakes section.
The other Lazio beaches to retain the blue flag from last year are Latina (Latina Mare), Sabaudia (Lungomare), S. Felice Circeo (Litorale), Terracina (Levante and Ponente), Sperlonga (Ponente, Lago Lungo, Levante, Bazzano), Gaeta (Arenauta, Ariana, S. Agostino, Serapo) and Ventotene (Cala Nave).
The recognition comes from the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE), which assigns the flags to beaches with "excellent" water quality. The agency also takes into consideration the beach’s waste management, recycling, the extent of its pedestrian and bicycle paths and green areas, and the presence of lifeguards.
A total of 368 beaches across Italy were awarded blue flags this year, up from 342 last year and 215 ten years ago.
