Back to Beaches and coastline

There are two nationally recognised awards which can be used to help you decide what is on offer when you see their flags flying above a beach.

Awards are based on quality of management, cleanliness, water quality and other criteria. The most prestigious being the Blue Flag Awards.

Other awards made to Torbay beaches include the Keep Britain Tidy Seaside Awards and the Good Beach Guide recommendation from the Marine Conservation Society.

We would like to thank Paignton Zoo for their support of the Beach Awards and Blue Flag scheme in Torbay.
