“I’m delighted that our beautiful beaches have once again received the Seaside Awards, showing that Seaview beaches are among the best in the country. It’s testament to the hard work of the Parish Council and our partners that we continue to receive these awards year after year.

“I’d especially like to thank our dedicated Environment Officers who work seven days a week to ensure that our beaches are a safe and enjoyable place to be for residents and visitors.”

Keep Britain Tidy’s Chief Executive, Allison Ogden-Newton OBE said:

“The success of Seagrove Bay and Springvale Beach in reaching the high standards demanded is testament to all those who have worked so hard to protect and improve our blue spaces – from beach managers and volunteers to local residents and businesses.”

“People who visit a beach flying a Blue Flag or Seaside Award can be assured the beach will be clean, safe and meet the highest environmental standards, as well as international bathing water quality standards.”

The Blue Flag and Seaside Awards are aimed at improving the quality of England’s coastline and promoting the country’s best beaches.

Blue Flag is an international award managed by Keep Britain Tidy on behalf of the Foundation for Environmental Education.  It is only presented to well-managed beaches with excellent water quality and environmental education programmes, while Seaside Awards are presented to the best beaches in England and celebrate the quality and diversity of our coastline.

Sandown has this year been awarded a Blue Flag – the only beach on the Island to be given the honour.
