Castle Beach flies Blue Flag

For the first time ever, Castle Beach in Pearly Beach has been awarded Blue Flag beach status, joining the three other beaches in the Overstrand: Grotto, Hawston and Kleinmond.

These beaches have earned Blue Flag status for the upcoming 2019/’20 holiday season which opens officially on 1 December 2019.

Added to the local Blue Flag portfolio, is pilot status for Onrus Beach.

The shark-cage diving boats operated by Marine Dynamics and Great White Shark Tours, as well as the whale-watching boats operated by Dyer Island Cruises have also earned their Blue Flag status.

This year’s announcement was made at the V & A Waterfront in Cape Town on Wednesday 23 October.

Altogether 45 South African beaches, nine marinas and 10 boats were awarded Blue Flags, of which 33 received the status in the Western Cape. An additional 35 beaches across the three provinces have been given pilot status.

Full status Blue Flag sites have met the minimum requirements for Blue Flag status in safety, amenities, cleanliness and environmental standards.

Pilot sites are recognised for working towards meeting the minimum requirements for full Blue Flag status.

The programme is run by Wessa (the Wildlife and Environment Society of South Africa).
