Blue Flag Global Accreditation for Nakheel beaches 

by Madaline Dunn

Nakheel has announced that eight Nakheel beaches have received Blue Flag status at its Jebel Ali, Palm Jumeirah and Dubai Islands locations.

The real estate developer shared that the Blue Flag display on a beach means that it is clean, meets safety and accessibility requirements, is managed sustainably and has “excellent water quality.” 

The Blue Flag is a leading international eco-certification programme owned and operated by the Foundation of Environmental Education (FEE), a non-governmental, not-for-profit organisation headquartered in Denmark. 

The Blue Flag is a voluntary programme available for beach and marinas, both private and public.

It focuses on connecting the public with their surroundings and encouraging them to learn more about their environment. It also monitors environmental conditions to reduce the impact of human activity at the beaches, at the marinas and by boating operators with a collective aim to promote the sustainable development of tourism. 

To qualify for the award, stringent environmental, educational, safety-related and access-related criteria must be met and maintained. 

After receiving the award, the owners/operators accept full responsibility to ensure continued compliance with all the criteria.

As of 2023, there are more than 50 blue flag beaches and marinas in 51 countries worldwide.
