Loss of blue flags a blow to Zakynthos

The loss of 18 blue flags from the beaches of Zakynthos is a significant blow to tourism on the island, during a year where tourists’ arrivals are up.

According to sources, Zakynthos lost a large number of Blue Flags as reviewers spotted a lack of criteria being met.

More particularly, this related to a lack of lack of services towards bathers and visitors, cleanliness, providing the right information, and the safety of bathers, along with steps to protect the coastal environment and the beach area.
