Summer is on its way, which means it’s time to hit the beach.

Blue Flag seasons begins on November 1 and 44 beaches around South Africa will fly the Blue Flag this summer.

28 beaches in the Western Cape, nine in KwaZulu-Natal and seven in the Eastern Cape were awarded the ecolabel.

The Blue Flag is an international annual award given to beaches that meet high environmental standards of excellence.
