Blue Flags for Fife Beaches

Thursday, August 9, 2012
Fife beaches have been awarded the internationally prestigious Blue Flag status for this season.
Fife’s Blue Flag beaches are Burntisland Beach (holder since 2001), Elie Harbour Beach (a re-entry), Elie Ruby Bay (holder since 2009) and Kinghorn Pettycurr Bay Beach (a new entry). There are only 5 blue flag beaches in the whole of Scotland this season. In addition, 14 of Fife’s beaches have also received Seaside Awards.
Keep Scotland Beautiful – who administer the Blue Flag programme in Scotland on behalf of the Foundations for Environmental Education – base these annual awards on high standards of water quality, facilities, safety and cleanliness, as well as other services.
The scheme is acknowledged by 41 countries and is designed to raise environmental awareness and increase good environmental practice amongst tourists, local communities and beach and marina operators.
All four Blue flag beaches also received the Seaside Award status. In addition, eleven beaches have also been recognised with the Seaside Award. They are: Aberdour Black Sands (holder since 2009), and Aberdour Silver Sands. Anstruther Billowness (a re-entry), Crail Roome Bay (holder since 1999), Kinghorn Harbour (holder since 2009), Kingsbarns Beach (holder since 2003), Kirkcaldy Seafield (holder since 2008), Leven Beach, St Andrews West Sands and St Andrews East Sands,
Amanda McFarlane, Chief Executive of Fife Coast and Countryside Trust said: "These accolades are a welcome reassurance for the many people visiting these beaches – demonstrating that they are of the highest standard.
“With the recent extension of the Fife Coastal Path, there has never been a better time to visit Fife's award-winning coastline. The Path, which is Scotland's longest, now stretches 117 miles from Kincardine Bridge to Newburgh."
Derek Robertson, Keep Scotland Beautiful’s Chief Executive, said: “The Seaside & Blue Flag Awards highlight that these beaches are an important resource to the local economy and that they are your beaches to enjoy.
“I would like to pay tribute to all the hard work that goes in to achieving and keeping these awards by Fife Council and the local communities. I would encourage everyone, particularly in this economic climate, to make use of the fantastic Fife beaches this summer.”
Grant Ward, Head of Leisure & Cultural Services at Fife Council, added: "It's good to see a Blue Flag first for Kinghorn, Pettycur Bay and that Elie Harbour has had its flag reinstated.
"The coastal communities across Fife are very involved in helping Fife Council and its key partners, such as Fife Coast and Countryside Trust, in maintaining these high standards. This great result for Fife is testament to the good work that these volunteers do.”
