The Blue Flags symbolize more than just beach quality; they reflect the municipality’s dedication to sustainable tourism. Almuñécar La Herradura’s proactive measures in beach management, including investments in infrastructure and accessibility, appeal to both domestic and international tourists seeking an idyllic coastal getaway. With its six Blue Flags fluttering, the municipality not only revels in its success but sets a compelling example for other coastal destinations, demonstrating that tourism and the preservation of natural beauty can coexist harmoniously.
