Beach warning flags


Many of you choose to come on holiday to Hotel Florida Spa not only because of the great weather we have here but also because of our great location right by the beach.

Beaches in Costa del Sol are some of the best in Andalusia; in fact this year here we have 24 beaches with blue flags, a certification only the best beaches in the world receive.

3 of these 24 great quality beaches are in Fuengirola. One of these beaches is the one by the castle, the other is Carvajal Beach and the last one is Los Boliches Beach, right opposite our sister hotels Hotel Yaramar and Hotel Angela.

Although we have fantastic beaches with clean water and great sand we should always be cautious and check the beach warning flags before getting into the sea.

These flags are usually displayed alone on a pole and have a traffic light colour system. A green flag indicates a safe bathing condition, a yellow one, means bathing with caution, while a red one indicates bathing is prohibited as it is very dangerous.

Now that you know about this warning system we are sure you will pay more attention and feel much safer next time you go to the beach.

Enjoy the sun and our beautiful beaches!
