For the first time, Nerja is flying four Blue Flags on its beaches this summer, two more than last year. In addition to Burriana, La Torrecilla, El Playazo and Maro beaches were all due to receive their flags at the end of June.

The flags are awarded by the Foundation for Environmental Education, an independent non-profit organisation based in Denmark, which this year has given them to 634 Spanish beaches. The province of Málaga has 21, two fewer than last year, with Benajarafe gaining a flag while Algarrobo, Torrox and Málaga city each losing one. Caleta and Marina del Este marinas also have Blue Flags this summer. Source; SOLtalk, July 2010
