Choosing a place for a summer vacation by the sea depends on many factors, and the cleanliness of beaches and water often plays a key role. So, based on Tripadvisor's research on the world's most environmentally friendly beaches, we are telling you about the top cleanest beaches in Europe that are worth visiting this season. This list includes locations awarded the prestigious Blue Flag from May 2023 to April 2024, which indicates the cleanliness and safety of the beach.


Sandbanks Beach, United Kingdom


This is a unique place primarily for the reason that it has retained its Blue Flag award for over 30 years, which is longer than any other beach in the UK. According to experts and tourist reviews, it is an ideal place for families with children, as they can safely swim and play in the sand without the risk of encountering any garbage.

Sandbanks Beach is located on a small peninsula that crosses the mouth of Poole Harbor. You can get here by public transport (train, bus or ferry).


Saundersfoot Beach, United Kingdom


This is an incredibly beautiful sandy beach with clear blue water. It is noted that this is a great place for surfing, and a considerable number of people choose this place for morning jogging. In addition, there is a promenade along the beach where you can find many shops and cafes, which will be a big plus on vacation.

Playa Blanca beach, Spain


This is another beach with incredible turquoise water and golden sand, but what sets it apart from the rest is the presence of a large number of marine life that can be safely observed with a mask and snorkel.
