Each of the 42 award-winning Brazilian beaches and marinas has demonstrated an outstanding commitment to sustainability, safety and environmental education. These sites are spread across various regions of Brazil, offering visitors a safe, clean and environmentally friendly experience. These awards are the result of joint efforts between local authorities, communities and environmental organisations. These collaborations have led to the implementation of sustainable practices, such as waste management, the protection of flora and fauna, and the education of visitors on the importance of preserving the marine environment.


Brazil, with its 42 beaches and marinas proudly displaying the Blue Flag, underlines the country’s commitment to offering quality tourism experiences, while preserving the natural beauty and biodiversity of its coasts. For travellers concerned about the environment, these beaches and marinas represent destinations of choice for enjoying the wonders of Brazil in a responsible manner.
