Leysdown, Minster Leas and Sheerness beaches have all received blue flags again this year.
After meeting the highest standards for cleanliness, facilities and water quality, all three beaches have been awarded with a blue flag.
Leysdown beach has also received the Seaside Award from Keep Britain Tidy presented to England’s best beaches.
Cllr Julian Saunders, the Cabinet Member for Environment at Swale Borough Council, told SFM News: “We have to meet a lot of criteria to be awarded a Blue Flag, so this is a fantastic achievement. Our beaches have lifeguards throughout the summer and the high quality bathing water our visitors expect.
Cllr Monique Bonney, the Cabinet Member for Economy, told SFM News: “Our blue flags have arrived in time for summer at Leysdown, Minster Leas and Sheerness beaches and we’re looking forward to welcoming tourists down to visit our award-winning coastline. The blue flags show visitors that our beaches are clean and safe, and that they meet the highest environmental and bathing water quality standards.”
