US Virgin Islands Awarded Seven Blue Flag Certifications

U.S. Virgin Islands

Five resorts and two marinas in the U.S. Virgin Islands were recently awarded Blue Flag certification. These Blue Flag sites, located on all three major islands, are operated according to ethics that respect the environment as well as the visitors who make use of the facilities. To attain the Blue Flag, beaches and marinas have to comply with a number of strict criteria concerning environmental information and education, environmental management, safety and service facilities and water quality.

The Blue Flag is only awarded for one season at a time and the award is only valid for as long as the criteria are fulfilled.

Season 2012-2013 Certified locations:

Beaches:

  • Pelican Cove – The Palms at Pelican Cove
  • Cinnamon Bay – National Park Service
  • Trunk Bay – National Park Service
  • Great Bay – Ritz Carlton Resort
  • Lindbergh Bay – Emerald Beach Resort
