The Blue Flag

Brazilian Beaches and Marinas in the Spotlight
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.

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.
