Six of North Norfolk’s beaches have been recognised for being well-managed, excellent places to visit with high levels of cleanliness and safety.

Four beaches – Cromer, Mundesley, Sea Palling and Sheringham – have been awarded Blue Flags. The Blue Flag requires the highest quality of water, facilities, safety, environmental education and management.

Two beaches – East Runton and Wells – have won the Seaside Award. The Seaside Award guarantees visitors a clean, safe, attractive and well-managed coastal stretch.

Keep Britain Tidy, which manages the awards, say themselves that “if a beach has a Blue Flag flying it is the sign that you have arrived at one of the very best in the world”.

North Norfolk District Council Leader, Tom Fitzpatrick, said: “Put simply, we have some of the best beaches in the world in North Norfolk and these awards help to demonstrate their quality.

“There is an enormous amount of hard work behind the awards and I’d like to say a big ‘thank you’ to those involved.

“We should be very proud of our coastline and its quality offering throughout the year.”DSC_0446 DSC_0452
