Greece has been awarded “Blue Flags” for 408 beaches this year, as announced on Wednesday by the Hellenic Society for the Protection of Nature, which runs the international 'blue flag' programme in the country. With 3.372 beaches receiving the award internationally, Greece thus ranked second among 51 countries.

The Blue Flags are awarded on a basis of a number of criteria, including cleanliness of the coast and the sea, organisation, information, safety and protection of the coastal environment.

Twelve Blue Flag beaches around Kef for 2014:

Avythos
Agia Varvara / Katelios
Ammes
AntiSamos
Aragia, Poros
Lourdas
Makrys Gialos
Myrtos
Petani
Platys Gialos
Skala
Xi

according to eepf.gr

Of course, there are many other beaches around Kef just as pleasant, but without the facilites required to satisfy the Blue Flag committee.
