Hove Beach Blue Flag

Hove Lawns Blue Flag Beach

FoPA are pleased to celebrate that Hove Lawns Beach has again secured the prestigious award and standing as a Blue Flag Beach for 2023. Hove Lawns is the only beach in Brighton and Hove to receive this recognition and only 1 out of 112 in the whole of the UK.

The iconic Blue Flag is one of the world’s most recognised voluntary awards for beaches, marinas, and sustainable tourism boats. In order to qualify for the Blue Flag, a series of stringent environmental, educational, safety, and accessibility criteria must be met and maintained.

Central to the ideals of the Blue Flag programme is the aim of connecting the public with their surroundings and encouraging them to learn more about their environment. As such, environmental education activities must be offered and promoted in addition to a permanent display of information relevant to the site in terms of biodiversity, ecosystems and environmental phenomena.

Sites that are part of the Blue Flag network all over the world are celebrating together the 35 years during which the programme has been continuously evolving and increasing its efforts to provide environmental education, to ensure the protection of the marine environment and human health, to improve accessibility, and to implement safety worldwide.
