What is the Blue flag

The Blue flag is a certification by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE). The FEE is a not-for-profit and non-governmental organisation. The Blue flag is sought for beaches as an indication of their high environmental and quality standards.

In fact, the standards of the Blue flag are really stringent. And they include:

  • water quality
  • safety
  • environmental education and information
  • the provision of services
  • general environmental management


In other words, these 28 Sardinian beaches have all the characteristics you may need to spend very unforgettable holidays.
