playa coromuel 3Corumuel beach, one of the closest beaches to downtown La Paz, was awarded the world’s leading eco-label for the 2016 season by the Blue Flag International Jury.

To be awarded the Blue Flag distinction, a national and an international jury analyses and evaluates excellence in the areas of: water quality, environmental education, environmental management, safety and services. Blue Flag has standardized protocols and strict selection process, verification and monitoring.

In a flag raising ceremony held at Coromuel beach on July 12th, The Secretary of Tourism for Baja California Sur, Luis Genaro Ruiz Hernandez said that one of the main goals of the current administration is to strengthen all tourist destinations in the State in order to position Baja California Sur as a world class destination. With Coromuel being awarded the Blue Flag international award, BCS is one step closer to that goal.

Ruiz Hernandez also stressed that this award is in recognition of good environmental practices and quality infrastructure that is both accessible and inclusive, which will only boost La Paz’s tourist image internationally.

Coromuel- the perfect beach for open water swimming.Coromuel, which is located at the north end of the malecón, is a great beach for families with kids as well as for open water swimmers.   It is a very convenient beach with parking, restrooms, a few shops, security and a long, inviting pier.  Being so close to town, the beach is very popular with the local crowd, especially on the weekends.

The Blue Flag is sought for beaches, marinas and sustainable boating tourism operators as an indication of their high environmental and quality standards.

In Mexico, 25 beaches and a marina enjoy the Blue Flag distinction; worldwide there are well over 4000 Blue Flag beaches and marinas in 49 countries.

Headquartered in Denmark, the program is operated by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE), a nonprofit, non-governmental organization, which has trademarked Blue Flag.

Since 2015, three beaches in Baja California Sur have been recognized and awarded the distinctive Blue Flag; Palmilla, El Chileno and Santa Maria beaches, all in Los Cabos. For the 2016-2107, these three beaches were renewed as Blue Flag, along with Coromuel beach in La Paz, which was proudly added to the list this year.

In Mexico, the organisation Pronatura Mexico AC is responsible for operating for the FEE. Pronatura is dedicated to preserving the flora and fauna as well as to prioritize ecosystems, promoting society to coexist with nature.

Without any doubt, the beaches of Baja California Sur are of world standard. Keep the beaches clean and give them the respect that they deserve.
