Limassol Marina is proud to announce it has achieved ‘Blue Flag Marina’ status in recognition of its commitment to environmental awareness and protection, the first Marina in Cyprus to achieve this international award. The award distinguishes the Marina’s high standards in environmental protection throughout its facilities and operational procedures, as well as its efforts to ensure and promote environmentally friendly practice from all visitors, residents and boat owners.
The flag was handed to the CEO of Limassol Marina, Mr Andreas Christodoulides, during a Blue Flag Award Ceremony organised by CYMEPA
(National Operator of the Blue Flag Programme) and held on the Marina premises on Friday 9th June 2017. All awards were given to their recipient Municipalities or Councils in the presence of the Minister of Agriculture and Environment, Mr Nikos Kouyialis, the Limassol Mayor, Mr Nicos Nicolaides, and representatives of this year’s 63 Blue Flag Beaches across the island.
The Blue Flag Marina programme is a highly-regarded and world-renowned accolade for environmental education, information and management, promoting and implementing safety regulations and procedures for the protection of the environment and water quality.
