The list of Blue Beaches now includes two additional Indian beaches
Minicoy Thundi Beach and Kadmat Beach, two additional Indian beaches, have earned the coveted “Blue Flag” environmental certification. With this, there are now 12 beaches that have received the Blue Flag accreditation, an eco-label given to the world’s cleanest beaches.
A number of demanding environmental, educational, safety-related, and access-related requirements must be satisfied and maintained in order to get the Blue Flag accreditation. Through environmental education, environmental protection, and other sustainable development practises, Blue Flag seeks to advance sustainability in the tourism industry.
One of the Lakshadweep archipelago’s most beautiful and unspoiled beaches, Thundi Beach features white sand and turquoise lagoon water. With its white pearl sand, turquoise lagoon waters, comfortable atmosphere, and hospitable residents, the Kadmat Beach is particularly well-liked by cruise passengers who come to the island for water sports.
Both beaches have personnel assigned to beach upkeep and cleanliness as well as to swimmer security.
The Minister for Environment, Forests, and Climate Change, Shri Bhupender Yadav, announced this proud moment on Twitter. He expressed happiness and congratulated everyone, saying it is a part of India’s tenacious effort to create a sustainable environment under the leadership of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi.
Shivrajpur in Gujarat, Ghoghla in Diu, Kasarkod and Padubidri in Karnataka, Kappad in Kerala, Rushikonda in Andhra Pradesh, Golden in Odisha, Radhanagar in Andaman & Nicobar, Kovalam in Tamil Nadu, and Eden in Puducherry beaches are among the other Indian beaches on the blue list.
